At Ellen‘s Age

At Ellen‘s Age

Ellen must come to face some new turns in life. Although her job as a flight attendant keeps her rotating around the globe, she finds her private life has become a placebo, lending the sensation of security she needs so badly. As everything that has given her life the necessary security falls apart, 40-year-old Ellen sets out to seek a new purpose and a place to belong. In doing so she becomes a tourist in the lives of the people and groups she encounters,

leading her towards a surprising catharsis.
