Mare has never flown, although she lives right next to the airport with her husband and three teenage children. She loves her family, but sometimes almost feels like a stranger in her own home. Who are these people she lives with? She finds herself gazing at the planes overhead, longing for change and the unknown. When one day a young man moves into the house next door, she puts her life to the test. This the story about pressures and expectations of society, roles we undertake and our internal wishes.
