It’s a Friday night in Berlin and the city’s on the edge of a nervous breakdown. A general strike has suspended all travel, stranding tourists and Berliners alike. Everyone’s trapped. Tempers are rising. And there’s no end in sight. This is bad news for cab driver Max, but his nightmare shift takes a turn when he picks up Maggie, a Canadian engineer whose life is falling apart around her. As they scramble across Berlin looking for a way out, Maggie and Max drift closer and soon realize something: they are falling for each other, but at the worst possible time.
