Neon Hearts

A middle aged truck driver spends a lot of time away from home and his family. On the road where nobody knows him, he is free to be himself and live as he wants, without judgement. However, one night when he comes back from a tour to Bucharest, he finds out that his son has gone missing. He is determined to find him and bring him back, no matter the consequences.
