    • Synopsis
    • EURO MOTOR is the story of Vic, a young Luxembourgish dandy and fashion photographer in the employ of a large advertising agency. A Polish model he is working with reminds him of his family's story, which he had been trying to forget. Sure enough, the young woman turns out to be his half-sister. The news she brings will throw his life into turmoil: his mother has passed away in Poland.
      One night, following an important fashion show, Vic ends up in a bar, getting drunk. He meets a group of youngsters who take him on a ride in their car. Waking up the next morning, Vic mysteriously finds himself stranded in Ostrowiec, a little village deep inside Poland, where traces of the communist past remain visible. After long and restless wandering, without money and without knowing the language, Vic meets Slavek, an older man who runs a small garage called Euro Motor. Vic starts to work there and somehow, suddenly, finds himself living in Poland, trying to fit in. The contrast with Luxembourg hits him. All the while his past life rises up through various mysterious events. He embarks on a voyage into his subconscious and into his family's past, unconsciously trying to tie it all back together...
      Intriguing events and a menacing encounter push him to unexpected choices and his own introspection.
