Destination: Paris, France
Marcel Proust’s maid has a secret: when she was asked to burn her employer’s notebooks, she saved one for herself…and now it’s made its way into Ernest Hemingway’s hands. In 1927, Paris teems with artists, writers, and musicians, but among the creative class and famous citizens, four regular people (a maid, a refugee, an artist, and a journalist) are each searching for something they’ve lost. Told over the course of a single day, this quartet of “ordinary” people shows how we each possess our own extraordinary stories.
