In four episodes, the film portrays the encounters between “couch surfers” and their hosts in four different places in Europe. In Stuttgart, Swabian publisher Annette meets Pawel, a Polish happy go lucky, while in Spain, her niece Nina is expecting a big fiesta but instead comes upon a deaf old man. Meanwhile Matti, a freshly minted high school graduate, is hoping for a grand adventure in Paris, while the two Erasmus students Reka and Alma wander through Frankfurt desperately searching their hosts. They are all on a quest for adventure, something different or just an authentic travel experience and meet up with people they might otherwise never have encountered...
