The Woman Who Missed all her Flights (2009)


A few hours before catching a flight that will take her back to her country, Sara is sitting on the porch of an old colonial house in the capital city of a tropical island, where she has been sent by her company. Sara is a professional tourist who lives from hotel to hotel and from restaurant to restaurant, writing reports for tourists and insurance companies in the first world. Sara has suddenly lost her vision after finding some objects that belonged to her husband, who died on the island under strange circumstances. A man and a woman, both native to the island, approach her with disturbing and inopportune intentions.
