THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US AND THE SKY Short Films

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US AND THE SKY

Night, national road. Two strangers meet for the first time at an old gas station. One has stopped to gas up his bike, while the other is just stranded. Lacking the 22.50€ he needs to get home, he will try to sell him the distance that separates them from the sky.
