A Story About The Other Side
Night, a place inhabited by an unknown wildlife. A mixture that is not found anywhere else. Often hidden underground, emerging rarely during the day, people are living against time and against a system, for a lifetime or for some hours. A world inside another world. Some come to work, others for fun, the night is fast, while few change overnight, people leave, come back, hide, change their appearance.
