Nick is his own worst enemy and he knows it, so to escape reality he embarks upon a journey to Croatia.
Young Nick, charming and talented, but restless and fickle, works as a chef in a restaurant. After his girlfriend kicks him out of her house and he is sacked by the restaurant, he goes on a long journey to Croatia in search of both the ultimate truffle, and himself. In the hospitable forests of Croatia he finally finds peace in an unexpected way. An unusual and self-reflective road movie.
