Summary In the strange beauty of a cold urban landscape there are three encounters between six lonely characters. A stingy old man in a wheelchair goes on a moonlight escapade to meet a lonely night nurse. A troubled actress in decline sparks the fascination of a latchkey teen. And an American astronaut jettisoned from space onto a high-rise rooftop is taken in by a doting mother who speaks no English. Official Selection at the **Cannes Film Festival.** Nominated for the Best Adaptation Award at the **César Awards.** “*A quirky and endearing urban dramedy...both amusing and tender...Public housing has rarely seemed so playful...*” - Jordan Mintzer, ***The Hollywood Reporter***
