Willie, a disenchanted loner, is visited by his sixteen-year old Hungarian cousin Eva. Willie's equally slacker best friend Eddie also meets Eva, and the three become loose friends, until Eva decides to leave to visit Willie and Eva's Aunt Lottie in Cleveland. After a while Willie and Eddie are surprised to find that they miss Eva's companionship and take off for Cleveland in an old car. Finding Cleveland in winter to be disappointingly cold and unattractive, the three leave Cleveland for sunny Florida, landing there in off-season. Accidental involvement in a drug deal provides some unsuspected good fortune until it becomes time for Eva to go back home to Hungary

Presents a chronicle of the new, lost, post-punk generation - a dream-like odyssey that incorporates the imagery of the urban wilderness, the bombed-out rubble of an after-the-holocaust setting with a lingering sense of metaphysical dread. A product of the New Wave, or what Jarmusch prefers to call the "Lower East Side film aesthetic."

The uncanny is so interwoven with modern material reality that it becomes hard to know where one leaves off and the other begins. These movies are classics of the wildly imaginative independent cinema that flourished in lower Manhattan from the late 1970s to the 1990s, but they were hard to find, until now. Features four of Driver's critically acclaimed cult hits, including Sleepwalk; You Are Not I; When Pigs Fly; The Bowery

Trama: New York, inizio anni Ottanta Willie è costretto ad ospitare per un certo periodo la cugina ungherese Eva. I due ragazzi condividono uno squallido appartamento in cui trascorrono monotone giornate davanti ad un piccolo televisore, consumando velocemente pasti frugali e ricevendo, di tanto in tanto, la visita di Eddie, un amico di Willie. Eva parte per Cleveland, Ohio, dove raggiunge la zia Lotte. Un anno dopo, al termine di una fortunata partita di poker in cui sono accusati di aver barato, Willie ed Eddie decidono di recarsi a Cleveland a trovare Eva. Nella piccola casa di zia Lotte, i tre ragazzi trascorrono giornate non molto dissimili da quelle di New York, con la sola variante che in questo caso, con la loro presenza, rendono più difficile l'abbozzo di relazione che si è instaurata tra Eva e il cinefilo Billy. Terminata la vacanza, Willie ed Eddie ripartono, ma appena messisi in viaggio viene loro l'idea di andare in Florida e di portare anche Eva. Giunti in Florida, Willie ed Eddie perdono quasi tutto alle corse dei cani ed Eva, costretta a non uscire per non farsi notare dal padrone del motel che ignora la sua presenza, decide di ripartire per l'Europa. Con i pochi soldi rimasti, Willie ed Eddie si recano all'ippodromo e questa volta vincono. Nello stesso momento, Eva, scambiata per un'altra ragazza, ottiene dei soldi da un singolare personaggio e, tornata a casa, lascia una quota al cugino e all'amico affinché possano tornare a New York, per poi dirigersi verso l'aeroporto. Letto il biglietto d'addio, Willie ed Eddie corrono in aeroporto per evitare la partenza di Eva, ma Willie sale sull'aereo per Budapest e parte Eva, però, non è partita e mestamente torna nella stanza del motel della Florida
