All that Meis (15) experiences is the passing of the time, waiting for the next car to hit her house.
Meis lives in the back of beyond and aspires to a wonderful and stirring life, but all that happens is - nothing at all. She dreams of a young car driver called 'Brad', whom she would like to take care of and maybe have sex with. One night, deliverance finally arrives. Outside her house, a car is enveloped in a cloud of dust. Inside lies the solution incarnate, all crumpled up. He is around 19 and his name could very well be Brad.
