In a dark forest where she was murdered years ago, Mina a young zombie girl, meets Alex, a kidnapped blind man locked in a car.

Short film amateurs might remember the eponymous short by the same director, released five years ago and acclaimed in numerous festivals. Here he not only retains, but also transcends the permanent uneasy feeling of this tale of two losers who will have to learn to know each other. Both gory and tender, sometimes reminiscent of Lucile Hadzihalilovic's or George Romero's cinema, The Dark is a most unsettling tale for adults.
