From Gonzalo Calzada, an astonishing tour de force reflection on the twilight years as a unique opportunity for redemptive connection with the truth of one’s being. Ulysses is 100 years old and lives alone on the verge of death. On this, the last night of his life, he experiences something forcing him to rethink his past, his present and his reality. Tortured by guilty remorse and confused by his senile dementia, he must make a last ditch effort to embrace his demise in freedom or become a soul in sorrow for eternity.London FrightFest"Weaves memory and nightmare into a haunting tale of loneliness and regret" - Jeanette Catsoulis, Critic's Pick of the Week Jan 2022 Review (The New York Times)"So emotionally charged that it's hard to control the tears from a very early point"- Martin Unsworth, Frightfest 2021 Review (Starburst)"Falling somewhere between Michael Haneke's Amour and Florian Zeller's The Father"- Anton Bitel, Ten picks from FrightFest 2021 (Sight and Sound) "Few horror thrillers have struck an emotional chord like Nocturna has"- Andrew Mack, Fantaspoa 2021 Review (Screen Anarchy)
