HOME SUITE HOME is a short dramady about Ludwig, an aging hotel inspector who travels the world, spending every night in a different hotel. The mini bar, the clean sheets, the room service; it's what he calls home. But through the years Ludwig has become tired of his luxury life. One night in Paris he accidentally runs into a younger female inspector, Stella. What happens next might be just the wake-up call his life's been waiting for.
