On a Magical Night

Chambre 212

Maria and Richard have been married for 20 years, when the unexpected revelation of her infidelities casts a heavy shadow on their relationship. Maria leaves the marital home and checks into a hotel room, opposite her apartment, hoping she can now thoroughly observe her life from a distance. Over the course of a hallucinatory night, a swarm of visitors come to her room, stating their own views on her marriage crisis. Amongst them a younger, yet fully aware of the present-day situation, version of her husband. A playful and carefully tuned bedroom farce that navigates through desire, compromise, and nostalgia.
