Inspired by the director's father's experience of being trapped in Greece's Ellinikon Airport without a passport for nine days in 1977, the film follows a week in the life of a man who has been living in an airport for a decade, keeping himself sane through a daily routine of letters to his wife, fantasies of flying an aging jumbo jet, and reading a precious copy of the children's book 'Watership Down' - filmed in the same Ellinikon airport, abandoned since 2001 and recently a site for Syrian refugees
