Film synopsis

"Can one accidental meeting at a street light cause several worlds to collide?
Elena, (Sara Klimoska - EFP European Shooting Star of 2021) a young HIV positive woman meets Fillip, (Filip Trajkovic) a young romantic man at an intersection in the city of Skopje. They spend the next couple of days walking around the city and getting to know each other while forming a special bond. Their strong feelings for each other makes their limited time together longing for more and leads to revealing more about themselves than they normally would, since both believe they will never see one another again. And what if their once in a lifetime encounter at the street light was just a possibility for creating a story, which might have never even happened?
