All he has with him are a back-pack and a slip of paper with an ex-girlfriend's address scrawled on it. When this address turns out to be a demolished building, Alex feels like - lost. His long journey has ended with a pile of rubble. For a while, he allows himself to drift through whatever situation life throws his way. But when he moves into an apartment building with an odd, lively array of characters, Alex desperately tries to ground himself. He longs to become part of a family - any family - whether its a prefab family (with Anne, a single mother of two), a family "by default" (his neighbours), or a family "in waiting" (with Ayla, the single ex-girlfriend of his best friend). But Alex has to decide whether he wants to stay put or keep moving. He wants to keep all of his options open - before they disappear. Written by Filmoption International See less
