The Gesture

By Sabine Bally
Fiction / 2013 / 5 minutes

A peculiar gesture has become the greeting hallmark of a small town in the Swiss Alps.
An unlikely meeting in a luxury hotel reputed for its strict tradition of hospitality is the root of this new tradition.  When an unlikely host is confronted with a Bollywood drama, she is forced to take things in her own hands and ends up transmitting the true sense of “You are welcome”.
