A vast airport hotel. Two people are awake in the dead of night. A stewardess and a reception clerk. Her problem: unknown. She cries in silence in her room. His problem: his family is in the massacre zone. He is on the phone to his sister. On the surface, the hotel is calm. Quiet. Modern. Even elegant. Four stars. He fulfills his duties. She fulfills hers. But a strange current of energy begins to be perceived in the vacant corridors, as these two souls wrestle with their traumas.
