After days wandering the streets with no post-carceral support besides the dubious company of older men, Angel visits her younger sister Abby, a bright, straight-talking pre-teen who struggles with being in foster care. The unspeakable circumstances that tore their family apart make being together incredibly difficult. Together, they gather enough money to get the bus to their father’s new place, but the tension between them is palpable. Angel’s inscrutability is matched by Abby’s sincerity and she must decide whether she will heal her wounds or succumb to the pain of her circumstances. Brooding, atmospheric and reticent, Night Comes On is a touching two-hander that portrays one young woman’s rage with quiet compassion.
