For those who have not seen the movie, the plot revolves around corporate downsizer and his travels. The film follows his isolated life on the road, his philosophies, and the people that he meets along the way. According to the director, "The movie is about the examination of a philosophy. What if you decided to live hub to hub, with nothing, with nobody?"
And while I clearly don't believe in life free of relationships, homes, people and things, there are many parts of the movie that remind me of my life working at "Large Consulting Firm" and being on the road. For example:
- The priority check-in at hotels and airports.
- The cheerful "Welcome back Mrs. Lastname" greetings I get at Sheratons when they see that I'm a platinum member.
- The airline and hotel loyalty programs and how I'll do almost anything to earn more rewards points or miles.
- How the main character and I choose our security lines at airports (look for business men, avoid families and the elderly. Sorry!)
