    • Synopsis
    • Felicia's departure day (after the annual visit to her family in Bucharest) is, as always, very tight: Felicia starts packing too late, mother offers an elaborate breakfast and father fears that he will not live to see his daughter again. On top, Iulia calls to say she will not be in time to give her sister a lift to the airport.
      As the taxi drives through the jammed streets of Bucharest, Felicia and her mother realize they will never be in time for the flight.
      While trying to rebook her ticket, Felicia is confronted with her two families (her ex-husband and her child in Holland, expecting her to come back in time - and her father and sister, who are both trying to be helpful in their peculiar ways). All these and the disrupted communication with her mother, reveal the painful ordeal Felicia had to go through in the last 19 years of separation from her family.
      After booking the flight for the next day, Felicia returns to her parents’ home. Mother is preparing dinner, the family reunites- Everyone enjoys Felicia’s presence, as she would just have arrived back from Holland.
