Because the night

Because the Night takes place on a mild summers´ eve which in its´ darkest hours is shredded to pieces by disco lights and deafening music. Four fates touch, four different people seeking each others’ attention. What they have in common is that none of them can stay at home, they are all bristling with sorrow, joy and longing. In the end the morning arrives to fill the city with light. We leave them where they are as suddenly as the spell of the night is broken.
