    A woman walks a fine line between sanity and madness in a world of constant twilight in this impressionistic experimental drama from filmmakers Maartje Seyferth and Victor Nieuwenhuijs. Nellie Benner plays a young woman who works at a filling station and lives a life of emotional isolation. No one seems to pay attention to her, and she lives in a run-down flat that looks as if it’s decaying before our eyes.
