At Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, a French beautician (Juliette Binoche) on her way to a new job in Mexico accidentally meets a French chef (Jean Reno) who has been delayed on his way to Germany from his residence in the United States. Labor strikes, bad weather, and pure luck cause the two of them to share a room overnight at the airport Hilton hotel. Their initial mutual indifference and downright hostility evolves into romance and a re-examination of their lives.

    Thompson obtained permission to film at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris prior to September 11, 2001. After the terrorist attacks, permission was withdrawn. Thompson then obtained permission to use Lourdes Airport, but was not convinced that viewers would believe it was Charles de Gaulle. Eventually she managed to gain 10 shooting days access to Paris. The rest was filmed on sets and in Libby Airport.
