A flight from New Delhi to New York
Two strangers, Seat 4E. Seat 4D. Nothing in common. Absolutely Nothing. Except they’re both hoping the seat next to them remains empty.
Mid-flight turbulence and infant incontinence force them to interact! The cool Wall Street guy. The mom with the drool stained sweater and ordinary aspirations.
Opposing views, blistering wit, judgemental sarcasm, and some unexpectedly poignant admissions- keeps them addictively engaged and hopelessly sleep deprived through the fifteen-hour journey.
Touch down. They leave the cabin without a backward glance Jump right back into their dramatically different lives. Never to meet again.
But their journeys remain interlocked through an inexplicable connectedness.
Can one meeting change everything forever? The Japanese have a term for it – ichigo ichie. One time, one encounter, lasts a lifetime.
