When the road is a movie

My mother watching from the balcony. Summer 2019. My mother was elderly and could not walk. I accompanied her to the balcony of her house, it was 2 hours to midnight. Shortly after I saw the lights reflected on the palaces of the historic center of Palermo that illuminated the scene as if it were a film. Citizens and tourists strolled slowly enjoying the evening. And my mother silently watched her movie for free.
