La fièvre

Aleister doesn’t have all that much time left with Joana before she moves out of town the next morning. Partying, dancing close together with friends, skating, smoking pot, chatting, or drifting through the evening - somehow none of these options seem right. What has to be finished? And what is worth starting over? And who is this strange guy with a bow and arrow?
