This unusual film explores the small dramas experienced by a group of people who have been stranded in Copenhagen overnight because of a cancelled flight. The all ride in an airport bus to lodgings in town, and the stories of each person or group of persons are told from the moment they leave the bus to the moment they get back on it the next morning. Extraordinary things happen to all of them, and yet, to see them on the bus the next morning, you would imagine nothing at all had happened. Strandees include a rock singer from Russia chaperoned by his English-speaking daughter; he is on his way to an engagement at, of all things, a Russian pizza house in New York. Another strandee is an airline stewardess, and then there are the two brothers who have reunited for the first time after many years. As the movie goes on, their stories overlap in humorous ways.
