While wandering through the night, director Alex searches for the essence of his film. He has a deadline to meet but seems to have lost his inspiration, and on top of this his girlfriend walks out on him. As time passes, the dividing line between fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred. Is Alex entangled in his own film?

Nocturne is a love story. A film noir about film. A tragedy. Theatrical. Sentimental. Youthful. Ambitious. Musical. Comical. A playful story about a hopelessly romantic boy.
