Even a wrong turn leads somewhere...

It's the year 2000 and a young man learns that his grandfather has died. He is faced with a choice: should he return to the family home in upstate New York for the last time? Or simply let his twin mothers, Marie Celeste and Celeste Marie, throw all his grandparents' possessions away? Going back would mean the chance of meeting again with childhood sweetheart Yesim, and finding out what really happened to his mysterious father, the charismatic Richard Ente.

But the past has a way of turning into a messy present, and every choice has repercussions felt long after it is made. Exposing the fragility of love, sanity and family, `Luminous Airplanes' resonates with the echoes of repeated mistakes, and the hope that one day things could be better.
