With a stolen VW Karmann Ghia they travel through dangerous and uncommon places in search of 3 simple wishes. Stallone wants to see the sea. Ana looks for someone to be her husband and Marcio needs to fly. In this wild search for their most intimate desires, they commit numerous harmless robberies and federal police starts to chase them.
