A retired man awaits his death in a city bathed in the supernatural. From episode to episode, he relives childhood moments, which we do not know whether they are real or the result of an overactive imagination.
The stories intertwine, the past catches up with the present and the great beyond, and the dead themselves impart their lesson. The testament of the director who died in 2011, Night Across the Street ventures into the afterlife to unravel the mysteries of time and death with humor, inventiveness, and immeasurable enjoyment of language.
