A French architect, Caroline (Marie-Josée Croze), in Vilnius, Lithuania on business, has to spend an extra night in the city due to an ash cloud from an Iceland volcanic eruption that shuts down airports across Europe. At the bar she meets Jaakko, a Finnish DJ who is in Vilnius for a gig. Caroline lets him understand that she doesn’t speak English, and Jaakko doesn’t speak French. Although they lack a common language, they find themselves enjoying each other’s company. A pleasant evening ends up with them spending a night together in Jaakko’s hotel room. As the airport closure continues for a second day, the two meet again and get to know each other better. What then follows is 24 hours that could change their lives, but do they dare to seize the opportunity?
