A lonely man moves from one hotel receptionist job to the next, attempting to stitch together some sort of meaning or connection in his life via the lives of his various guests.
Aya Tanimura (“Möbius”) has completed the requisite training for film direction over the course of a decade in Los Angeles; serving coffee; working on Solaris, Funny People, Inception, and most recently as Katy Perry’s estate manager. In between her busy schedule she also manages to write and direct movies.
