GOODNIGHT NOBODY is a hypnotic journey through the night. By entering the minds of four insomniacs who are night people against their will, we experience their state of suspension between a realistic dream world and a dream-like reality. Following the rhythm of the night, the experience of sleeplessness is palpable - stimulating but also numbing - with an interplay between melancholy and martyrdom. These four insomniacs from four different continents guide us through their night, the night that imprisons them. One night full of darkness and solitude, one night with fear and pain, but also one night filled with beauty, fantasies and hope. These are fragments of life stories, told in concentrated silence. As each night hour is heroically defeated, carving a path towards morning, the first sunbeams are both a curse and a relief.
