Spring Grants 2017 - Production Stage
Current project status: PRODUCTION
While searching for sleepless souls, a storyteller finds a woman standing in front of her door, waiting. Her son disappeared years ago and she has been awake ever since. After each sunset, Night, a girl in a long black dress, knocks on the woman’s door, bringing back the son into his mother’s arms. As the daylight starts coming through the windows, the girl and the son disappear. Filled with hesitation, the storyteller tells the woman a story that will make her cry out her hope and fall asleep.
