Alice (Sarah Gadon) is an actress who just finished a shoot in Barcelona. On her last day in the city, she hastily tours the sights, while reflecting on her continually disappointing relationship back at home in Canada. After purposefully missing her flight home, she relishes the temporary sense of freedom that comes with being a stranger in an unfamiliar city. That night, she explores a fantasy of leaving her life at home behind and trying to start over.

“Paseo” is a sensory exploration of being away from home and the desire to disrupt one’s safe and familiar existence by leaving everything behind and starting anew in a completely different place.
