When her boyfriend Benni leaves her, Magda is left to live alone in their old apartment. With his departure, his hobby of driving a motorcycle also vanishes from her life. Still clinging to what they once had, Magda enrolls in a motorcycle driving course, but the first few driving hours turn out to be more difficult than expected. When Magda realizes that Benni has already moved on from their relationship, she has to make a decision: Will she throw in the towel or learn to drive on her own?
