Brief synopsis

It is a stormy night. Magdalena loves Frank but she has just killed him. There is no turning back so she leaves him in the kitchen in a pool of his own blood. She races with her car as fast as she can away from the site of the murder. But the night in the deep forest is even more dark. The heavy rain and her own tears blurs her vision and she crashes into something on the road. When she leaves the shelter of the car to find out what she has hit, the story turns around and the perpetrator becomes the victim.

TWILIGHT is a film you have to watch with your guts, not with your brain. It is an experimental investigation about the beauty of darkness and the fascination for suspense in cinema.
