Queen of the High Road

44-year-old Annie is facing a life crisis. Having recovered from breast cancer she is back at work as a home carer, a job she finds both comfortable and boring. Her relationship with Mårten is also strained, especially as he has joined a choir with the annoying Carola. To make matters even worse, she has also been dumped by her best friend Åsa, whom she had planned to go into business with.

But things take a positive turn when Annie falls madly in love with an old Scania bus from the 1960s and heads out on the high roads to sell underwear. Over the next few weeks she goes through a complete metamorphosis while she forges new friendships and experiences the breath-taking scenery of the Swedish countryside. It is time to find out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. But she is also haunted by a secret from her past. Does she know the whole truth about her background?

Queen of the High Road is the first part in a series about Annie and her lingerie bus. A charming and offbeat story about break-ups and courage during a time in life when many choose to remain complacent.
