Every evening a man in his late 50s commutes home at the end of the working day in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. As the seasons pass we observe dramatic events of his life as well as mundane quotidian details and learn more about the man, his inner conflicts and the relationships in his life. Within the microcosm of the car, the film ultimately becomes a meditation on the passage of time, memory, work, and how love and the relationships in our life sustain us.
