Film synopsis: 
In the magic atmosphere of a summer night four different people stray around in the dark, looking for some joy or trying to overcome their melancholia. For some moments their paths cross and they get closer, but they also drift apart. In the end, they all get together by a tune that makes them feel connected, even if maybe only for this night.
Budget Range: 
Between $100 000 and $10 000
