Before Aksana goes to sleep, she turns on the light
Time and again, the past comes crashing down on her as the horrors from her homeland become real in her dreams and rob her of sleep. Aksana is a stranger in Germany. Even though she finds distractions here and there during the day and music offers her a chance to make cautious contacts, every day is followed by a new night. And the next morning, Aksana is still one of the refugees in Germany who has never really arrived. Because she can only arrive when she is allowed to stay safely.
