If the Sun Comes Out, I’m Going Without Money – to Dublin on a Scooter

An incredible journey across Europe – without money and as proof of great love

As a 23-year-old actor, Jonas Baeck falls head over heels for a fellow student – on stage, in Romeo and Juliet. When summer vacation begins, he hatches a plan that’s as crazy as it is romantic: a trip to Dublin on a scooter. As proof of his love, he wants to bring his Juliet an old edition of Shakespeare. And, as if that weren’t enough, he decides that if the sun comes out by the time he sets out he’ll leave his money and cell phone at home.

On the road, he encounters generous gas-station attendants, whimsical street musicians, new friends, the Bard (again and again) and, last but not least, himself. Moments of happiness and despair await him – as do countless adventures. He acts, sings and yearns his way across Europe, doing unimaginable things.
