The German highway system harbors surprising sanctuaries: highways chapels, wedged between gas stations and fastfood restaurants. Visitors pen down all sorts of things in ‘wish books’. Some offer a thank you for a hard-won football game or fantastic sex. Others pour out their hearts and write about their deepest fears and desires as if it were their own diary. This heartwarming mosaic documentary draws you into unexpectedly intimate stories about loss, lust and love. In a tender way, it shows the confrontation between the daily grind and our secret fears and passions.
