Money is the main reason for Petar to be a long-distance lorry driver: it can give his child a future. But as weeks and months go by, Petar feels his dreams slipping through his fingers. The world of highways, industrial zones and parking lots is a hard place to stay sane. Distance and time cause his marriage to crumble, to the point that he is about to lose all contact with his son. A Parked Life offers a majestic view of the European continent, from the simmering deserts of Spain to the frozen north of Norway. At the same time it offers a delicate observation of a man who feels disconnected and lost in this world.
