White Wedding is a modern fantasy based on the classical ballet Giselle. It is about mysterious young women, who dance themselves to death on their wedding night, and from then on rise every midnight infatuating men with their bewitched dancing to draw them to the other world.

White Wedding carries the love-story of Jeane and Alex into a modern day city. Jeane is dancing herself to death in a club and Alex falls in love with her at that very moment. Later, Jeane appears to Alex and tempts him to follow her into the realm of the dead.

White Wedding is a modern dance art-film without dialogue, displaying its strengths by a perfectly balanced combination of dance, imagery and music, avoiding the restraints of a feature film or a music clip.
