Their encounter is none other than a blind date. Step by step, as they get to know each other, so do we… In the midst of this weird, awkward and moving journey through the night, we the audience look deep into both of the characters’ hearts and hopes, and we feel with them the longingness to be loved. With an innovative narration, ONE NIGHT dives into the fascinating mix of words and feelings that characterizes any relationship’s beginning. How to be yourself and find a person who is right for you – as crazy and as broken as you may think you are – remains a universal theme.
