Digital presentation - Anne Émond’s debut feature is a bold and intimate and erotic study of a one-night stand. Clara and Nikolaï meet at a rave. They return to his apartment for sex. Afterwards, instead of parting ways, the two lovers divulge their deepest secrets to one another. Nicolaï is a 31-year-old who leads a simple and frugal life, but is a bit of a loser. He applies himself to reading the great classics of literature bur never finishes a book he has begun. Unable to submit to any schedule, he finds himself unfit for work. Clara, like Nikolai, seems not to be made for this world. She leads a double life. By day, she works as a grade three school teacher. By night, she is a compulsive party-girl, getting drunk and high and sleeps with men … and women. Nuit #1 is a cathartic chamber piece about two modern young people who dare to go much further.
