“The Night Shift Belongs to the Stars” is the story of Matteo (Enrico Lo Verso), a passionate mountain climber, and Sonia (Nastassja Kinski), a married woman, also in love with mountain, as they set out to climb a peak on the Dolomites, in Trentino, Italy. Their friendship started in the hospital while they were waiting for life-changing surgeries. He received the gift of a new life through a heart transplant. She has had an open heart operation and a new mitral valve. The path to recovery will be connected to the passion they share for the mountains, the pain and fear they went through, and the promise of a climb together to test their new heartbeats. Will their hearts survive the challenge? While Sonia’s husband, Mark (Julian Sands), worries about her and feels threatened by the complicity between Sonia and Matteo, the two aim for the summit, opening the route to a new beginning and a second chance at life.
