Ellen has to change something about her life. Since she is constantly travelling around the globe as a flight attendant, her privat life has become something like a placebo that provides the security she badly needs. But then she suffers a panic attack just before takeoff and has to leave the plane. Traversing the runway she realizes that she is about to leave her old life behind her. Feeling like a stranger everywhere, she endeavors on a search for a place like home. But she feels like a tourist in the lives of other people…
