The Story

Thomas, deserted by his long term girlfriend, takes to the open road on a one week vacation to live his Cowboy dreams of freedom. He hires a street musician as his personal jukebox. Together they drive into the countryside in search of adventure. They furiously clash during a canoe outing and split up. Thomas paddles on, is run down by a passing pleasure boat, and ends up in a coma. His friends visit him in hospital and make helpless efforts to bring him round. One year later he lives in a small town and celebrates his first birthday.
