Turnaround is a thriller set in London during the second wave of the current financial crisis. CEO Harry Ingram sets out one Sunday morning to destroy proof that he’s embezzled millions in private pension funds. Desperate to manage the cover-up before the massive news story hits, he arrives to discover Max, a dangerous professional, waiting for him. The self-righteous embodiment of everyone who ever got screwed by a major corporation, Max intends to make Harry pay for his misdeeds, one way or another. We follow the relationship of these two incendiary individuals while Max waits for the call that will apparently determine Harry’s fate. John Boorman’s ‘Point Blank’ meets David Fincher’s ‘The Game’.
We are a group of young filmmakers from the London Film School & Royal Holloway at the end of our courses gathering funds to shoot our film Turnaround. Though we follow Harry Ingram’s journey through his experience of being kidnapped, this film also has subtext about the recession and greed in general (in short we don’t hate business or capitalism). The three of us have recently shot 'The Here and Now' a 90 second short film about loneliness in a big city for the Depict Film Competition. If you are interested in funding us but want more information please feel free to get in contact and we would be happy to start a dialogue.
