The young Turk Yavuz, the small-town cop Uwe, and the middle-class kids Jacob and Pelle: four people who couldn’t be any more different. But each one of them is convinced that this 1st of May is going to change their life. Their stories rotate around and bounce off each other, driven by the determination to take what they have been missing in life. Today is their day.
