Jet Lag

 

(Décalage horaire)

She is running away from a man she hopes she no longer loves. He is running after a woman he thinks he might still love. He is traveling first class on a flight from New York to Munich. She is flying to Mexico City on economy class. He is having a nervous breakdown but he won't admit it. She is seeing for the first time with open eyes that her life is a failure. She is rather colorful, talkative and extraverted. He's discreet, reticent and shady. Neither Felix nor Rose is in any condition for an encounter, however brief. It's the beginning of a major school holiday at Terminal F of Paris' Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport. Engine breakdowns and computer failures multiply. It's one of those days...everything has come to a stop, especially time. They must wait... They both walk up and down in the Terminal. They keep on meeting each other, at a newsstand, in the waiting lounge, an infirmary, or a hotel room. Although they say hello and then goodbye, again and again, Rose and Felix refuse to admit that fate keeps pushing them together...
