A young woman takes a night train. The journey brings back painful memories. At the adolescence, she lost her boyfriend of a violent death. Today, she is still unable to mourn this relationship and to heal from this trauma. During the journey she will try to calm her thoughts and make peace with her memory. The journey by train will be for her a meditation where she will try to leave behind this past which prevents her from advancing. The contemplation of the moving landscape and the interaction with the travelers will give rise to emotions that will help her in this process. Between the sleep and the awakening, this night crossing until dawn will be for her a real journey towards the cure and the liberation.
