An Airport like many others, check in area. Alex is waiting for his turn but at the moment he is showing his documents, the airplane seems to be full. Overbooking is the correct name in this case where the number of persons are more than the actual seats at disposal. Not even the arrival of the director of the airport will change the situation, no solution of help for Alex. He has to stay on earth. Overbooking is a story about a very particular journey, a distant and ironic observing point of view of one of the most discussed and animated questions of our contemporary lifetime. A balance between comedy and drama, between reality and imagination.
