with Natacha Régnier , Bruno Todeschini , Mireille Perrier & Emile Berling

Languages: English , French , German
Produced by Gian-Piero Ringel & Angela Schanelec

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 mother (Mireille Perrier) and her nearly grown son (Emile Berling) are traveling to the funeral of her exhusband, the boy’s father. 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.
