Ghost Train. Finding love in a dark cabaret-theater

After having to put his wife in a nursing home, the lonely life of 84-year-old Geoffrey turns upside down when he takes a ride on ghost train that takes him to Dracula's, a cabaret-theatre set in the world of vampires.

There he meets Gillian, the lead vampire of the show, with whom he begins a relationship as dissimilar as it is endearing. This documentary short film shows us the improbable forms and places that love adopts at any time of our lives.
