Yellow Darkness is an abstract look at the struggles which a young sport professional must face. It shows the nationalistic mix between fight, victory and suffer which melts too a conglomarat that we normally understand as the healthy and honorable world of sports. In a development similar to the classical catharsis of a hero, the shown athlete develops a kind of second, dark character which stands in opposite to her innocence of the first part. It is a result of her first injury, which shows her the fragility of her former safe and sucessful world.
