What will save you when you lose everything you thought you had?

Marisa is spiralling fast: she’s furious and humiliated after being dumped for a younger actress. Now she’s having panic attacks and contemplating drinking herself to a dramatic end. When the doctor, Victor, arrives, he pulls Marisa up from the depths of despair, with a calming nature and good humour. Despite him being in his own complicated relationship, Marisa soon becomes convinced the kind doctor will be her saviour in more ways than one.

A riveting, funny and disturbing story, One Whole Night is a portrait of a woman who is both flamboyant and vulnerable, narcissistic yet insecure, who will leap blindly at happiness or be sucked into a whirlpool of misery. One Whole Night takes unexpected twists and turns, going seemingly from a story of lost love regained to something quite different.
