The Night Shift

Hugo Pedro

A young room attendant lets slip out of his cage the pet bird of a whimsical French guest. Knowing that the guest is coming back to the hotel only on the following day, she sneaks into her suite for a night, in the attempt of finding back the bird, but what was about to become an unsettling night watch turns out to be a revealing experience.
