Synopsis of new acquaintances

Four new acquaintances meet in a strange city. Each one carries a backpack and has left a world behind, a world that seems to be frozen, but that may be moving faster than it seems. What do they leave behind? What do they choose to wear? What new commitments do they assume?

A traveler, a girlfriend, a national foreigner, an only daughter, a child-lord, one who does not trust, one who feels guilty, one who knows she will return, one who does not know if she will stay, one who will. Four actors, four stories, but many at the same time.
