A young man freed after 4 months of captivity in Syria puts his previous life behind him and goes to live in his childhood home in Goa, where he meets Maya, a young Indian woman.
“(…) Mia Hansen-Løve's cinema continues its gentle portrayals of drifters, all a bit addicted in their own way. Heroes wandering through the world with the inconsequence and cruelty of a passing visitor, on their way back up, waiting for healing without really looking for it. The same applies in Maya as to Hansen-Løve's previous protagonists, Gabriel is a journalist, a war reporter (…). He has the fine features of Roman Kolinka, already revealed in Eden as a man absent from his own existence (…). Maya is getting ready to enter the world and Gabriel is returning from it damaged, both seem to find each other on the same trajectory seeking a place, their own place, which cannot be the same – and Mia Hansen-Løve's eye suspended on this idea of a quest without a clear destination”.
