The MH370 was an international passenger scheduled flight operated by Malaysia Airlines. On March 8, 2014, the Boeing with 227 passengers and 12 crew members took off from Kuala Lumpur towards Beijing: unspectacular routine for 39 minutes and 13 seconds. Then the plane disappeared from the radar.

His disappearance is described as one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time – because it seems unbelievable that something as big as a Boeing can be lost in a world where everything and everyone is probably under surveillance. And it seems impossible for it to remain lost. Although the search with over 150 million euros was the most expensive in history and of imposing proportions.

Shortly after the disappearance of the plane, the father of the author and director writes his grandson four birthday greeting letters. The content is almost identical; each envelope is stamped with a special stamp. A year later, no card comes at all, the birthday had probably been forgotten, and at some point this forgetfulness gets a name and becomes a disease: dementia. The name of the grandson is forgotten, the fact that there is one, and finally the certainty about oneself. In «All right. Good night.» Helgard Haug traces the disappearance, the search and the struggle with uncertainty – using the example of the missing plane and the manifesting dementia of her own father. It is the protocol of an irreversible process.

For «All right. Good night.» composed the electropop musician Barbara Morgenstern for the first time for a classical orchestra in collaboration with the arranger Davor Vincze. Will the twelve musicians of the Zafraan Ensemble succeed in making the gap and the subsequent emptiness comprehensible?
