Director: Bram Schouw
During a nightly train ride, a beautiful dark girl comes and sits across from a young man. The strangers stealthily flirt with each other, which becomes truly surprising when we get to know more about them.
A man takes a train at night. The landscape that flashes by is alternated with the blazing train compartment and sleeping passengers. A dark girl throws her bags in the rack. The man furtively glances at her and she looks back at him. Then, something drips from her bag onto his head. Her perfume. When she gets off the train, he rubs his head and smells his hand. When he turns around to watch her walk off, the man shows a lot of himself.
