Weisse Nacht

A Film by Sabrina Sarabi

Synopsis

A young couple gets themselves into a role play for the course of a night.  But soon enough the borders between reality and game, between role and identity begin to melt. Parts of their personality come to the surface which will destroy their assumed intimacy.
