Recap

Jake introduces himself in the opening narration. He has lived more than 4,100 days, and hasn’t spoken a word in 11 years. According to him, there is nothing called chaos as we understand it. Everything follows a pattern. Martin is at the airport, when his colleague hands him the cell phones that passengers have left behind. Martin is about to take all of them to his gifted son Jake, who loves to take them apart. Just as he carries them through a corridor, one of the passengers calls up his lost cell from Mumbai, trying to find where his phone might be. Martin explains he is not stealing it. It was found in the lost items box at JFK, and he works there. Martin is reluctant to send the phone to him when he insists to see his daughter’s picture in it. However, just as he is about to note the address to send it, his own phone buzzes. Jake has done it again, and Martin runs leaving the lost phone on the luggage belt...
