A lyrical film noir about two producers, an investor, a deadline, a woman, a gun, one night and a hopelessly romantic boy.
While wandering through the night, director Alex searches for the essence of his film. He seems to have lost his inspiration. Aside from this, his girlfriend is walking out on him. The more he wanders, the more Alex is convinced that the essence of his film is the struggle between love and ambition. But slowly we realise that Alex cannot tell where reality ends and his imagination begins...
