Surely enough he is able to describe in details all destinations he sells to clients, while dreaming of faraway adventures, but he has never set foot outside his native country.  His whole life is about to change the day he replaces his boss on a 5 day-business trip to Paris. His wife secretly dreads what he might discover there… Trailer :

It tells us the story of a man torn between his attachment to his roots and his irresistible yearning for adventure… “Le Voyageur” is Hadi Ghandour’s first film. The Lebano-belgian director now based in Paris, first attracted attention in the US with his high quality-documentaries, including the acclaimed “Love After Sunrise”.
