Two strangers meet on a train travelling across Europe, and seemingly begin to fall in love.

It all begins with Jesse (Ethan Hawke) meeting Céline (Julie Delpy) on a train from Budapest and striking up a conversation. Upon arriving at Vienna, where Jesse's flight back to the States will take off, he asks Céline to leave the train with him and spend the time he has left before his flight together.

Jesse doesn't have enough money for a hotel, so they spend those pre-flight hours roaming Vienna, looking at landmarks, but for the most part conversing and learning about one another. Romance soon wraps them up in its gentle bubble, and both viewer and the lovers feel that Jesse and Céline are the only two spirits left in Vienna...
