    Coming-of-age

    Kun seems to be messing up pretty much everything: his senior year at Film school, the job on his friend's graduation's film and the relationship with his girlfriend. But Kun just got his driving license and with it, the cheapest second-hand car he could find: an old wreck of a Jeep Cherokee that might turn out to be the key to his wildest dreams.
