People in a very busy air terminal - ORLY - a huge airport in which millions enter and leave every year. Everybody has things to do and places to go.

Here we are given a brief peek into the lives of nine people awaiting their flight. None of these nine know the others. A family, boy and girlfriend, a ticket seller, etc.

Like all others we have needs and wants, love and fear, certainty and uncertainty. We are mostly all alike in those aspects of life.

Here you are offered a quick look then it's gone. Just like the airplanes coming and going.
