The Distance Between Us and the Sky

The Distance Between Us and the Sky

Night has fallen on the old National Highway. Two strangers meet for the first time at a wretched gas station. One has stopped to gas up his bike, while the other is just stranded. He is €22.50 short for getting back to Athens. This is exactly the cost of the distance separating them from the sky.
