Sitting in the back of a moving car, different passengers go on the road on the edge of a vast forest. They carry tales about hornet’s nests, petitions against nuclear waste, loneliness, carnival treats, folklore traditions, cemetery visits and roads leading home. Passengers and their stories are arranged symbolically to follow a life span – from childhood to old age and final absence. As our passengers ‘grow older’, the stories become more serious and lively chit-chats are replaced with worrying about social issues, preserving tradition and reflections on life before finally coming full circle with return to childhood memories.
