"The sun has risen tonight, and it will only set in thirty days. I cannot fall asleep."
This film was shot in Northern Finland under the Midnight Sun. It explores the struggle of a man with deprivation of sleep during the time of the white nights, finding at the end a deserved peace, with the first sunset of the year.
