A big city. A hot summer night. Several love stories crisscross in 6 different vehicles: two cars, an ambulance, a taxi, a bus and a tractor-trailer. Each vehicle is loaded with the protagonists’ life’s baggage: two teens in a convertible, a cab driver wounded by betrayal, a trucker in love, a lover hardened in bygone battles, a nurse who doesn’t know how to forget and an abandoned woman. All of them will be dragged in the same direction without realizing their lives are connected.
