In a world where light has become a luxury, a young woman who has been living in the darkness for the last couple of years faces the last minutes before she is going to see the daylight again. Alina, a young hard-working woman, feels like she has won the lottery, because today it’s her turn to leave the darkness for one whole day. While waiting to be picked up to start her adventure, she has mixed feelings about it and can’t decide whether she should be the happiest person in the world or if it would be better to continue living without this experience, one which could change her life forever.
