Brief synopsis in English Nick, a middle aged man, works night shifts at a petrol station away from the busy city. He loves spending his nights staring at the sky, gradually building his own reality and personal beliefs. He feels different and has the urge to get away. "Strange objects" in the sky had promised him an escape out of this place. His last lone night is interrupted by an unwelcome customer Bobby. The curious customer engages Nick into a conversation which ends up ruining Nick's belief and obsession. As Bobby drives off into the night, Nick pursues his vision and has to make the biggest decision: to go on or to give up.
