Messidor 1979
Tired of her dull urban life, Jeanne, a young history student, decides to abandon her studies and take a break in the country. Whilst hitching a lift, she meets Marie, a woman of her own age who works in a shop. After visiting her father in Lausanne, Marie is heading back to her mother's place in a rural part of France. Jeanne has no specific destination in mind and so trails along with Marie. At the last moment, the two women change their plans and decide to embark on a hitchhiking tour across Switzerland.
What begins as a game soon becomes a harrowing ordeal, which neither Jeanne nor Marie is able to give up. When their money runs out, they are forced to commit crimes of increasing seriousness, just so that they can hold on to the freedom they think they have acquired...
