    • Synopsis
    • During a top-executive bank meeting in NYC skyscraper office Louis, 48, attorney of law, is given the task of flying to one of the “oil countries” to evaluate how the ongoing riots there, might affect the bank he works for.
      On board the aircraft Louis falls into a sleep and has nightmares: riots on the streets, assassinations of innocent civilians. During his stopover at Frankfurt Airport, Louis learns that his flight has been rescheduled. The riots in a country of his destination are making the trip impossible. Louis has to spend the night in an airport hotel.
      While working on his laptop in his hotel room, underneath one table-leg, he finds a piece of paper. It is a leaflet advertising a nightclub. Club's logo – an animal's paw – reminds Louis his post in Bosnia. He was a lawyer in human rights organization. He hired a local woman Milena, 22, to be his interpreter. They went together to Srebrenica. What was initially just a work became a love affair. The girl had the same tattoo as club's logo.
