Joana, a seven-year-old girl, lives in a house close to a little village in Cataluña, where her grandfather runs a small antiques business. The shop is a huge warehouse, full of dark corridors and dusty corners, where objects wait to be bought, as forgotten by life. Joana spends her days by the warehouse, while waits for her mother to recover from an illness that has kept her in bed for a long time. The grandfather is her only company and she has become a silent shy girl, trying to understand the world surrounding her.
Overwhelmed by the place she lives in, Joana sees the objects in the warehouse -old tables, jars, beds, books, pictures, paintings, used shoes and clothes- as vestiges of past lives, buried by time and oblivion, and she realizes that her mother -her belongings, her feelings, her love- will soon become a memory too.
The night of all things is a story about absences and sadness, but also about our memories, and how these are all we are. A reflection on what we leave behind us: what is forgotten and what remains, what time erases and what lasts forever in the memory of those who loved us.
