Volvo is about the simultaneous dissolution and creation of relationships. A husband and wife's relationship is strained by an infidelity, which threatens to tear them apart. Meanwhile, their son meets a young girl and, for perhaps the first time, feels a connection to someone he desperately needs. These couples share only two things: their desire to be someplace else and their mode of transportation. The story takes place entirely inside the family Volvo as the couples find themselves bound together by the inexplicable pull and irreversible push of fate.
