A writer travels along the Danube in search of the river's origin. It is said that its waters come from a badly closed tap in a house. On the way he meets a young fugitive who escapes from his house by descending the river. Does the Young Fugitive come from the source of the Danube? What is his story? A film inspired by Claudio Magris' Danube tales.
