Directed by Kaat Beels (HOTEL BEAU SÉJOUR), Nathalie Basteyns (HOTEL BEAU SÉJOUR, THE OUT-LAW) and Ibbe Daniëls (RÊVE KAKUDJI), and set in the aftermath of the horrific real-life terrorist attacks on Belgium’s national airport on 22nd March 2016, Lost Luggage is a poignant and bittersweet drama about loss, love and finding the strength to carry on against the odds.

Ten days after the attacks, Samira Laroussa, a resilient, half-Moroccan policewoman, is tasked with handling and returning all the baggage and personal belongings left behind in the departure hall that day. However, every new encounter with a survivor or relative of one of the deceased serves to unbalance the seemingly strong Samira, who is far from ready to deal with the pains of her own troubled past. Even so, she perseveres in helping people cope with their loss and creates a sense of solidarity by encouraging them to share their pain and to look to the future. In her blind determination, however, Samira forgets one thing: herself.

Dealing with destiny, one case at a time.
