Join Josephine Baan on a walking tour of Kallio during the dark hours of the night. Fact meets fiction and the absolute becomes entangled with the abstruse in a narrative that attempts to uncover hidden histories, presents and futures. Just as night transforms day, so volatile is our perception. Roam along, and allow Josephine to shed some light on what is really quite a complicated matter.
