"At night" invites you on a journey into the darkest time of the day: noises suddenly become symphonies, houses grow into the sky and the moon is snatched out of the sky without further ado. In the night hours, everything suddenly seems possible, more so than during the day, especially in our current reality of life. "At Night" celebrates courage and imagination, confronts the monsters under the bed and shows how man can jump over his own shadow.
