A casual meeting on a plane and watching a movie turns into a virtual romance. While on an airplane, a traveller's spirit plunges into a dream world. Here, under the influence of the unknown, the logic of his desires prevails, and a romantic saga takes shape. This animated film by Georges Schwizgebel masterfully transports us into a swirling world. Set to the twists and turns of a Rachmaninoff scherzo, Romanceexuberantly marries music and movement, erasing the boundary between dreams and reality.
