This Swiss film explores the borders between the right to freedom of movement and the restrictions national security requirements put on society. In a modern day airport, the flow of passengers is broken by sudden irregularities. Security forces try to get to the cause of the disruption, and the atmosphere turns menacing at the slightest anomaly. Tragedy and panic are always just one step away.
