Elsa is afraid to sleep, actually she has not slept a wink for thirty years. Early one morning when she’s sitting at the kitchen table, she finds an unwelcome guest underneath her sofa.
The creature turns out to be none other than the Night itself. Elsa tells it of her life, and her best friend – an elephant named Ola as the Night accompanies her on a moving journey.
