Lost and Found

A Film by Claudia Seibl

Synopsis

What’s further? There or back again? Or maybe just standing still? These are questions that Neil Goldman, an aging travel book author from the USA, and Janek, a young Estonian emigrant, have to face the night before Christmas at Tallinn Airport. Their flight to New York gets bumped to the next morning due to a snow storm, and as they wait together, they discover that, although they are quite different from each other, they need to learn from the other’s characteristics in order to solve the major problems in their respective lives. They find out that it is never too late to make the right decision.
