From that point on, for the Dubé family as well as for Mayor Smallwood and a handful of others, time seems to lose all meaning, and the days stretch on without end. Something descends slowly upon the area. In this period of mourning and in this fog, strangers start to appear. Who are they? What is happening?

End of winter. Two hours at the Paris Orly Airport. A young woman (Natacha Régnier), on the way home to her husband falls for a stranger (Bruno Todeschini).

A young couple (Jirka Zett, Lina Falkner) on their first big trip abroad lose touch with each other. A woman (Maren Eggert) finally dares to read her husband’s (Josse De Pauw) break-up letter in the soothing anonymity of public space. All wait for their planes. Completely absorbed in following their immediate fates, they move through the impeccably structured and functional building, unaware of a looming threat outside that will result in the airport’s imminent evacuation.
