The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

After a fight with her mother, the rebellious Sofia runs away from home. She wants to hitchhike to Italy with the vague goal of finding her biological father. Michael, a guy in his mid-forties, finally picks her up, but the two give each other the creeps. To Favoriten and back: you can’t always choose those dearest to you.
