Crash Test Dummies

Jörg Kalt
The opportunity to make some fast money by delivering a hot car moves Ana and Nicolae, a young couple from Romania, to take a bus from Bucharest to Vienna. After arriving they are told to be patient, their car is not ready yet. Ana wants to return, while Nicolae would rather forge on westward. Without any money, they are stuck in Vienna. After a fight they split up and both of them encounter various locals. Later, when Ana and Nicolae meet up again, their relationship is bathed in a new light.
