The night alphabet

When we love someone, we create an image of that person. But, when it comes to it, do we project our love onto the image or onto the person? This film portrays a young couple with a newborn child in a foreign city. Incapable of communicating his feelings, Ruben alienates himself by writing in the night alphabet. But, by doing so, he strives further and further away from reality. Meanwhile Diana, his wife, has a fight of her own. Locked up in a small apartment, she has to deal with her baby blues. The immersion in the fictional world that Ruben creates, begins to invade reality, sharpening episodes of psychosis or confusion for Diana. Little by little both finish destroying the ruins of what was left of them.
