A story of a 42-year-old man who one day decided to leave his family. His low-key journey is filmed 10 years after he has hit the road. His trip is an escape, a way how to avoid a serious decision, a way to get rid of a two kilo tumour on his face which he is unsuccessfully trying to cover with a beard. These escapes represent his way of running away from fear, from unbearable situations, the weather and the daily search for a place to spend the night. But his health keeps reminding him of reality – he is waiting for a surgery, which could have fatal consequences.
