December 27th, 1999 - Vala (30) and Benni (32) are on the road with their yellow canary in a Volvo filled with luggage. They're moving from the city to the countryside and are struggling to find a common ground in the destination. Their journey comes to a violent stop when they get into a head on collision with another vehicle. The Volvo spins off the road and tumbles to a stop, upside down at the bottom of a hill. Vala wakes up in the wrecked vehicle with pounding pressure of blood in her head only to find out that she is stuck in her seatbelt and Benni is nowhere to be seen.
