Americans abroad, almost innocents. Charlotte, fresh out of Yale with a degree in philosophy, is in Tokyo with her husband, a photographer whose work takes him away that week. She's adrift, her soul on ice. Bob, mid-50s, a semi-retired movie star, is there to make $2 million doing a whiskey ad. At home are a wife and young children, but he's jaded and melancholy. Both are jet-lagged, and Tokyo's culture and language push them further off kilter. When they meet in the hotel bar and spend their free time together for a few days, possibilities arise amidst the losses. Their friendship becomes an experience: does he have something to teach, can she reconnect him to life?


Sometimes you need to be taken completely out of your element to discover that you're completely lost. Do you ever wonder why your vacations turn into a soap opera full of drama? It's because when on vacation, you discover what you're REALLY trying to get away from, and what you REALLY want to return to. If you don't jump out of bed each morning with a desire to live life to the fullest, then you need to watch this movie. Similar (in message if not content) to American Beauty......look closer. (P.S. NO! You won't laugh hysterically at Bill Murray in this film, but YES, you will leave the theater wondering "Who will I meet today, and how will they change my life.....even if just for a moment")
