After sunset, the night comes to life once again, emerges and starts to redefine the property of the space inside it. The tie between reality and human consciousness, so strong under the sunlight, has lost its strength. In the uncertainty, the imagination becomes memory and the memories turn into a dream.
The gray area, which separates the tangible reality from its representation in the human mind, is the ideal set of this short film. Following the path of an abstract living organism through the unconscious of an individual, the observer experiences the different stages of consolidation of his reminiscence, linking remote but related perceptions into a connected chain. The development of this journey is designed to stimulate conflicting feelings, sensations of discomfort, alienation and desolation, as well as expectation and excitement. The continuous spatial progression, sustained by a gradual increase in visual and acoustic tension, is abruptly interrupted at the moment of contact between the two subjects. Due to a substantial impossibility of communication, the dialog, the final confrontation, the union among them will never take place.
