Synopsis: A French military unit has just arrived on the island of Cyprus for a three-day "decompression" stay in a five-star hotel before it heads home from Afghanistan. While a motley crew of tourists bask in the sun, these men and women of France’s armed forces participate in group therapy sessions to work through traumas suffered on the field and prepare for life back home. "The Stopover" focuses on two female soldiers as they face the lingering sexism of their male comrades in arms, the memory of a military operation gone horribly wrong, and a nightmare encounter with some aggressive locals.

Festival passes to all films and events are $35. Tickets and festival passes are available online or at the door.
