Vincent works long nights in Paris’s underworld. He has long since stopped dreaming of another life, but when he unexpectedly becomes responsible for his teenage daughter, Adina, his existence gains a new light. He has never taken care of a child before, and he is torn between the destructive tasks he is forced to perform at night and the desire to be a good father. One day something happens that makes this precarious situation come to a head. The film is a poetic meditation on how love and violence can exist within the same person. It is a story of Vincent but also a story of our times, where Vincent could be you or me.
Director Mia Engberg will be introducing the film before the screening on Saturday 19 August.
