Director Statement

The story was inspired by my personal experience when during a trip, the airport company lost my luggage. While they were searching for it, I was making stories in my mind about where the suitcase might be and what is it doing, so I humanized it in a way. So, after this sad experience I ended up with a new script and I managed to put it on screen.
