Jem Cohen writes and directs this reflective drama about a developing friendship between two strangers. Once a road manager for hard-rock bands, 60-something Austrian Johan (Bobby Sommer) now spends his days working as a security guard at a Viennese art gallery. One day, while quietly pondering the paintings and the endless streams of tourists, he meets Anne (Mary Margaret O'Hara), a Canadian who has arrived in Vienna to visit a relative who is in a coma at a local hospital. After offering his services as an interpreter for her dealings with the hospital authorities, Johan soon becomes Anne's guide to the city at large. As the pair traverse the city, stopping off at bars and cafes along the way, a deepening relationship begins to build between them as they share their thoughts on art and life.
