In an industry first, 25 filmmakers from 13 countries including South Africa, China, Lebanon, Germany, France, and the U.S. joined forces to write, direct, and locally produce segments for a film, which brings together a variety of cultures, languages, and film styles into a singular narrative plot. "The Owner" follows a backpack on a journey around the world, intersecting the lives of dozens of fascinating characters along the way. As the story progresses, we learn details about a mysterious man, known only as Mr. MacGuffin, to whom the bag possibly belongs.
