A young man is on a quest to find his fallen brother – a pilot shot down over France in the Second World War.

Except it’s not that simple, as the war has been over several decades, and the brother has shown no signs of ageing. As he makes his way through the tourist ruins of France in a clapped out Volvo estate he is embraced by a drop dead gorgeous girl, who offers him a perspective on his situation. His brother is not the only one to have fallen from the sky…

Little is explained, but to compensate, the short relationship between the two is a vivid physical one.
