From the confines of her home in England, a filmmaker embarks on a digital quest to track down an old friend who disappeared years ago in Japan. With the internet as her only resource, she stumbles upon ‘The Inquirers’, a website full of souls looking for lost people. As she gets closer to finding her friend, she finds herself wondering why it is so hard to forget about some people, and, equally, why is it often necessary to let them go. In The Space You Left is a film about the meaning of missed connections in the digital age.
