In the film, Isobel’s husband Jack assumes she’ll follow when he announces his intent to pursue a job that would require him to live in Bangkok for five years, leaving her life and career behind. However, Isobel is not prepared to follow blindly.
Hurt and feeling misunderstood by one other, they attempt to reconcile their lives and love in Paris. Both struggle with a desire to care for others without being aware of their inability to care for each other, refusing to give up despite themselves and despite the world around them.
The fest runs from October 1 to 6.
