Into the Night tells the story about retaining humanity in the face of a cosmic disaster, as a flight departs from Brussels in the early hours. It is inspired by the science fiction book "The Old Axolotl" by Jacek Dukaj. Into the night is the story of a group of people onboarding a plane from Belgium. Televisions inside the airport begin to show people collapsing right in the middle of their broadcasts. The plane is hijacked by a frantic Italian NATO Soldier called Terenzio. Terenzio gets onboard and forces the flight for an early take-off. The few people that are still on the aircraft become survivors to the deadliest global catastrophe that results in people dying due to exposure to sunlight. In an attempt to escape the catastrophe, the plane continues to head west to avoid the sunlight. The passengers left in the plane must work together to continue to avoid direct rays of the sunshine, and manage challenges such as fuel shortage, irradiated food and other problems, in a quest to reach an underground military bunker to save their lives.
