As Always Night opens, we are introduced to an attractive, wealthy couple celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary.
Almost immediately we realize this couple is out-of-sync. Roger spends most of the evening indulging in self-involved reflection, while the elegant Valerie seems detached and preoccupied.
Superficially, it seems as if we are witnessing the dynamics of a couple who've grown emotionally distant.
However, when Valerie ruminates about how perplexing it is “humans” have survived so long despite being so fragile, we soon realize something much deeper is amiss than a marriage in crisis.
Our suspicions are confirmed as Valerie reveals to an astonished Roger she isn't completely human, and most definitely not of this earth.
Before she departs in an ethereal burst of light, she drops another bombshell: she isn't alone, and things on earth are about to change.
Like Roger, we are left to wonder what are the exact implications of her startling pronouncement.
We want to know more.
