Even life upside down has its routine. This is so humanly true. Times of shock and confusion and trauma cannot last; even these things lead to a new version of normalcy and routine. The only thing to do is give in–to admit that people still need certain things. Jon and Estelle’s daughter, Jennifer, has been abducted in Paris. Their life is search. She’s been gone for more than five months, and when people ask how long, it’s just, forever. That kind of panic can’t continue though, or if it can, it acts out in different ways. Jon meets Iris, relationships strain, fear turns to anger and blame. This is natural–somehow, normal. We can relate to these people: we’ve all seen bad things happen, we’ve all been tested and tired and put to the limit. We’ve all made decisions out of desire and despair: sometimes they’re not so different. This isn’t a tired story, though; things don’t work out quite as expected. In a place like Paris, where people are always moving about and soaking things up, translation can get tricky. By the end, you’ve decided what you’d do: who you’d be–and that might surprise you.
