Scene from "Orly" (photo courtesy of Films Boutique)

End of winter. Two hours at the Paris Orly Airport. A young woman on the way home to her husband falls for a stranger. A mother and her nearly grown son are traveling to the funeral of her ex-husband, the boy’s father. A young couple on their first big trip abroad lose touch with each other. A woman finally dares to read her husband’s 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.
