The Passage (WIP)

The Czech Republic prom dances are a tradition inherited from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a rite of passage for future graduates. Unlike the American prom, the family, including relatives, are invited to the festivities to this one-night event. Over a thousand people in a grand ballroom slum it on sultry tangos or relive their youth on outdated waltzes.
Under the tolerant gaze of their parents, young people drink beer or tequila bottoms up at the bars located on each floors, but not everyone partake in the festivities. This period, so intense and fragile between adolescence and adulthood, the emotions overwhelm on this important day, leaving a few souls lost in the crowd or seeking isolation.
