Directed by Nora Martirosyan

with Grégoire Colin, Hayk Bakhryan


Alain, a French airport auditor, is assigned to study the feasibility of reopening the airport of Nagorno-Karabakh, a self-proclaimed republic seeking international recognition.

In this surreal location – at an airport without planes, in a republic without legitimacy – for the first time in his long career, Alain finds the regulations, clearly defined by the International Civil organisations Authority, too narrow to meet the absurd reality of the country.
