Truckstop

A mother and her troubled 18-year-old daughter Katalijne manage the roadside café where driver Remco gets his coffee most days. Together these three daydream about love, money and success, blind to the reality of their everyday lives, but just a little bad luck changes their dreams into a joint nightmare.
