An unagitated situation at the airport. A baggage claim. Suitcases are screened for security. Business as usual. In the bags, everything is fine. The aeronaut is working on one of these stations. He looks into the luggage of thousands of people every day. What he - and only he - sees, is his secret, a gift. When the bags and suitcases are x-rayed, the things inside them begin to move and suddenly come alive. In this brief, transparent moment they tell him a story about their owners, showing a piece of their soul. It’s always been like that. He is immersed in absurd, tragic and amusing tales in his seemingly unspectacular workplace. Everything seems to be running as usual, if it weren’t for that one suitcase. A suitcase with no life, no movement. It belongs to a woman. The aeronaut gets up and follows her. Amazing encounters await him and he becomes more and more enthralled by another, different secret...A story about a gift, a secret and love. Written and Directed by Carlo Palazzari
