About the Film

Plot Outline

Liza is a young Dutch woman who travels to Venice to meet her Italian father Mauro.

Mauro has not seen Liza since she was three years old, when he and Liza’s mother decided to split up. Mauro has traveled the world since as a musician. When Liza is in Venice it turns out there is more in store than just a couple of days in Venice. He takes Liza on a musical voyage along the route of the Orient Express. A trip that will eventually take them to Istanbul.

Many small adventures and meaningful encounters happen along the way. The journey takes us from Venice to the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana,from the inner city of Zagreb to the plains of Northern Serbia, from the hills in the South of Serbia to the rural beauty of Central Bulgaria, culminating the trip at the splendor of the Bosporus.

Father and daughter are much more alike than it appeared at first. Their bond is strengthening with every mile of track they travel.

Then, at the easternmost tip of Europe in Istanbul the story takes a dramatic turn.
