Four young people meet at sunset, in the shadow of the olympic truce that has just been called: time has come to crumple, one gaze into the other, in the communion of tiredness. Poets suggested them that time for resistance is the present one, and its form is duration.
In order for them to not get caught unprepared by the dawn, they learn how to recognize each other with invisible signs of agreement; they practice how to drive their gaze towards the same direction. Tomorrow, they will keep piercing the world.
This is the wish that leads us, and the same we want for the audience: may these Olympic Games be the time of an encounter, the place where to find eyes to walk with through the night.
