Plot
Every city has the traffic it deserves

This is not a film about the how the roads or the cars look like, but about what the traffic turn us into. I chose 5 different people whom I accompanied all over town, in their every day journeys. Since May till October 2008, I have been with them in their car, sitting on the right seat and listening to them. They are all ordinary people:

- a delivery boy from the country whom, for the last 2 years, has been driving about 14 hours a day around the capital, covering about 150 km each day;
- a half paralyzed man who not only drives a car, but he also helps other people to avail themselves of cars;
- a Peru born woman, who was raising in a city with an equal crazed traffic, who made her studies in N.Y. and Madrid, and who is now the mother of three boys whom she takes to school every day in Bucharest;
- a father who has recently lost his daughter in a traffic accident and who still hopes that, one day, Romanian justice will do what it is supposed to do;
- a policeman who, before December 1989, was beaten up by the militia, a man who is still listening to rock music and who has been a traffic agent for 17 years.
