Documentary portrait of Dutchmen living and working in their cars. How do Dutch people spend their time caught up in the daily traffic congestion? Queuing is a frustrating activity, producing a cacophony of honking drivers. Nevertheless, not many people eventually set their faces against it. Career coach Titia de Vries looks back on her failed relationship with a Senegalese man. Psychic Tino Firorelli uses the wait to arrange his thoughts about his wife's disease. SER chairman Rinnooy Kan's driver muses about a solution to the congestion problem, and the Turkish satellite dish installer Ziggy Kayabasi dreams about returning to traffic-jam-free Istanbul, with the wife he has been married off to. Forced by circumstances, people seem to consider the closed world of their cars the ideal place for contemplation and self-therapy.
