More About the Film

A romantic couple is spending the day cycling in the countryside. They enjoy it at first, despite their different attitudes to nature and expectations from the trip. When a storm hits, it becomes clear they have a problem dealing with the situation together now that it is unpleasant. Is it going to pull them apart, or bring them closer together?
