Zelle: wenn es dunkel wird.

Zelle, wenn es Dunkel wird,
is an answer without a question. It's winter on a mountain. On the mountain, there is a cabin. In the cabin, there is a woman. The woman holds a secret. Within the secret, there are questions. Questions without answers. Only the certainty that a crime has been committed. It is an intangible and technological staging, in which darkness leads us to a light in a cell, from which only questions can set us free, questions to which there are no answers, there in the darkness. Is it not in the darkness where the light shines brightest?
