INVASION / Hojoom

Eternal darkness shrouds a stadium where a body has been found. The police have identified a guilty party and now the crime has to be reconstructed for the case to be shelved. However, the players forget their roles, chaos breaks out and the reconstruction of the crime transforms into a tragic love story.

This is a masterly crafted romance laced with vampirism, made all in a single shot, redefining the meaning of space and time in a breath-taking style.
