Short Film Profile


A dark night has come over Paris. Eric is waiting on a train station platform, all alone.

Exhausted by a tense day, Eric has one single thought in mind: to escape from this city he hates. But the train he's waiting for is not coming.

Suddenly... a strange cry resounds in the night. A gravelly moan of pain, like that of a woman or a wounded animal. Is this someone asking for help? This voice came from the other side of the railways, in the distance... a strange cry for help.

Eric hesitates: he is no hero. But the cries comes again. It's a woman asking for help.
Eric has to do something. He staggers towards the end of the platform.

Just darkness. Eric takes a breath then goes down on the railways where it's not safe. Walking 2 miles from here, Eric suddenly realizes that the train station has just dissapeared. How could the train station have vanished?

A pale human form emerges from the darkness: a slender, distraught figure, stuck in a mass of fabrics and metal... she was waiting for him.

Will Eric escape from this nightmare?
