BRUSSELS - Money is Petar's main reason for becoming a long-distance truck driver: it can give his child a future. But as the weeks and months go by, Petar feels his dreams slipping through his fingers.

The world of highways, industrial estates and car parks is hard to keep sane. Distance and time cause his marriage to crumble, to the point where 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.
