Benzina is the tenderly dramatic story of two young girls not much over twenty. The story evolves around Stella and Eleonora (nicknamed Lenni), a petrol pump, a snobby, super-bourgeois mother hovering threateningly over Lenni’s life, the two girls’ love affair and their desire to escape. Then, night time and an accident, or maybe a crime… the desperate escape, like an odyssey, with the cumbersome corpse of the mother to get rid of without being seen.

Two opposing lives to escape from: Lenni, blonde hair, a conventional bourgeois life; Stella, black hair, a chaotic life and no family.
