Arrive today, stay tonight, leave tomorrow.
Peter is on his way to his first overseas trip, Maddy is on her way home from her latest trip, she’s a seasoned traveller. The city is just a stopover for Peter, but for Maddy it’s her last grasp before returning to the realities of home. She takes him under her wing, teaching him the way to travel without a map, to be spontaneous, and to live in the moment, because when you’re travelling, that’s all you have. A film based on the strong bonds and connections travellers make when on the road with each other, experiences that light up like sparks, and end just as quick as they start. Travel doesn’t always go to plan, and sometimes when it doesn’t, it can be the time you remember most.
