Samantha stumbles upon a letter tucked between pages of a Travel3Sixty magazine, while waiting for her flight to Sydney in the Premium Red Lounge. What follows the intriguing opening line of “follow this letter and the more you’ll see…”, are random actions, almost as if specifically addressed to the bold and free-spirited. Close to dismissing the letter at the call of an airport announcement, she decides to bring it with her, only to realize what she sees now can change anytime – if you take the leap and fly.
