Nocturnal Ecstasy

After a guest appearance at the Hamburg State Opera, the ballet dancer Alex plunges into the Hamburg nightlife. By chance he discovers a newspaper photo that strengthens a suspicion to be a part of an unknown twin. While searching for the mysterious doppelganger he lapses into nocturnal ecstasy causing the borders between reality and fiction to melt away.
