Sometimes they talk all night long. In the still darkness of their cell,
Molina re-weaves the glittering and fragile stories of the film he loves,
and the cynical Valentin listens. Valentin believes in the just cause which
makes all suffering bearable; Molina believes in the magic of love which
makes all else endurable. Each has always been alone, and always -
especially now - in danger of betrayal. But in cell 7 each surrenders to
the other something of himself that he has never surrendered before.
