At the beginning of the film, after a man empties out the contents of the backpack and doesn't find anything valuable and leaves it, a homeless looking young girl approaches it and begins to pick up the contents. There are several letters and one of the letters she picks up has on the envelope written "mac guffin", this is a reference to a plot device popularly used in films known as a MacGuffin in which an object serves as the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation- just like the backpack in this film.

Watching a movie that entertains you with such a complex production is just refreshing and brings hope to my spirit. The story is well presented throughout many countries, characters and sub-stories. The production design as a whole is just an award winning job!! Highly recommended! The acting is great and really liked watching the culture of each particular country coming afloat in each segment with the plots each story has. Connecting all the segments with just a bag is a brilliant idea! And these filmmakers took full advantage of this to collaborate in a movie that reflects the real spirit of indie filmmaking. Storytellers by nature. A great movie that needs to be watched!
