Audio Tracks 

Bertil has spent almost every day of the last 40 years on different roads, in different trucks and a countless number of truck stops. He enjoys being alone and rushing down the highway, without thinking about anything and knowing where he is going. But the life behind the steering wheel makes deep marks on both body and soul and by never stopping and never really climbing out of the trucks, he managed to escape from what really is the most important thing to him. Now close to retirement Bertil gets a chance to catch up what he has missed.
