Ana, a young Spanish woman, hitch hikes near a desolate highway in the middle of the night. She lives in a world of truckers, highway restaurants, and passing strangers. Ana is lonely, until she is taken up by a rock band that introduce her to a world of decadence. She quickly starts an affair with Daniel, the bandâ€™s lead singer.
Ana has found a way to escape to a new world, leaving her life in Spain far behind. Yet, she often calls her family in Spain, in an attempt to ease her feelings of guilt. Daniel and his band seem to be the key to Anaâ€™s new life. That is, until she realizes Daniel is a manipulative dandy with little respect for her. Ana finds herself dazed and caught in her new surroundings. Her delusions are her only sporadic escape from her new surroundings. Or is it her past that keeps following her?
