synopsis.

FRIDAY

LOUIS WEBER, a cynical New York writer urgently returns home to his native village in the Alpine Valais region to collect on his inheritance. 

 

His father has just passed away, and it becomes quickly clear that there is no love lost: Louis still blames him for the death of his mother, even beyond the grave.

 

Following a brief meeting at a notary's office, he learns he must wait until Monday to find out about the potential inheritance he views as "payback" for what his father did 25 years ago.

 

He winds up finding a room for the weekend at a local bed and breakfast.

 

SATURDAY

To kill time and relieve his own mental anguish, he decides to write a damaging new novel about the Swiss, inspired by the B&B owner’s smart yet eccentric 24-year-old daughter STEFI who is dying to escape the Valais. A RADIO SHOW called ‘There are no Swiss,’ plays at the Chalet, where the complexities and contradictions of Swiss identity are debated and the country’s historic complexity humoristically lamented.

 

He spends the weekend sadistically poking at the psyches of his fellow boarders, exploiting their innermost conflicts and confidences to use as fodder for the characters in his new novel. Stefi gradually warms to him, though he is too preoccupied to notice.

 

As he sinks deeper into this manipulative drama of his own creation, nightmares and daydreams begin to distort his reality.

SUNDAY

A snowstorm hits the town hard, causing two new guests take refuge for the night in the chalet: a father and son, both farmers. A power outage prompts all seven guests to gather by the hearth, where Louis orchestrates clashes between them by drawing on his intimate knowledge of their differences and weaknesses.

MONDAY

Early that morning, following the previous night’s madness and emotional intensity, Louis has an unexpected and meaningful exchange with the two farmers. Finally able to confront his past in the presence of the two simple mountaineers, he finds redemption both for his deceased father and for himself.

Kevin Christoffersen - F.E.D - FILM FIANCING

Producer

I've been producing multi-media content internationally for over 20 years while living in North America, Europe and Scandinavia. This has included feature films, documentaries, live event video webcasts, broadcast tv productions and corporate videos.

On the education side, I'm teaching workshops and webinars that cover the feature film development process from A to Z. Filmmakers are then fully prepared to present their projects for investment opportunities.

As a screenwriter, my narrative focuses around a higher consciousness of storytelling rather than repetitive mainstream stories driven by violence.

While based in Switzerland for seven years as Executive Producer of World Television, I contracted and managed large scale live broadcast event productions for Fortune 500 companies and United Nations agencies highlighted by the World Economic Forum's annual Davos conference.
