Story Synopsis

_______

Set twenty years from now. Britain has become a totalitarian state.

 

After an attempt on his life, Mr Castlin, a powerful crime-lord wakes up in a mysterious hotel. 

 

The Concierge escorts him to the bar where he encounters the Devil and he is forced to justify the violent choices of his life and ultimately bargain for his soul.

 

'My only hypocrisy is pretending to me more wicked than I actually am.’

_______

TRIVIA:

- The script was finished on Christmas Eve 2017. This may partly explain the influence of Dickens, A Christmas Carol on the story.

- The name Castlin is a combination of Castro and Stalin.

- The 'Hotel' is set in a eternal now where past, present and future all co-exist.

- The book the Concierge reads is 'The Heroes' which is the same book Lincoln reads in 'through a dark mirror'.
