Ein Film v. Timo von Gunten
Triggered by the mysterious phenomenon of the Voyageur spacecraft returning to Earth, Virginia leaves everything behind to go on a journey with her dead father who she believes to discover in a night train after 25 years of separation. The dead corpse she pushes along in a wheel chair becomes alive and leads her to a place in Bulgaria where her greatest weakness is hidden.
«LE VOYAGEUR» is a story that portrays the journey of a young woman seeking her father who she lost long ago. The entire story leads back to one concert, Simeon promised her when she was a small girl. It’s the concert that never happened as he died from a stroke.
