A young woman goes out into the street in the middle of the night. We hear her voiceover and we feel very close to her. A soul in the making that reveals her deepest wishes and fears.

Shadow Light. Wandering through the night

A young woman goes out in search for a night that can change everything. She wanders around expecting to find a break from her daily life and exceed boundaries. The glowing cigarette is dancing with her as her constant and only companion in the darkness. 

Like a sleepwalker she roams bars and night clubs. A night out becomes a symbol of a desire for love and truthfulness, the unknown. The wish for ecstasy and living the moment. The search of a flow, of the healthy certitude that everything is exactly as it should be. The lights of the night cast dark shadows.
