A statue of Melancholia on the hill looks on as the citizens of the city of dreadful night wander through the dreamlike and nightmarish streets. Dorota is a woman trying to come to terms with her lover’s insanity. Klaus is her lover, desperate to remain insane. Lisandro is a man terrified to go back to sleep because of his nightmares. And James Thompson is a man whose friend’s early death has caused a crisis in his faith but is the man who may be able to find the answers to everything.
