It’s Christmas season in a small austrian town where, following tradition, the local men parade in daemon-like masks and costumes to frighten the children. A couple meet for a drink but are interrupted by a group of these paraders who initiate a seemingly friendly drinking game, changing their lives permanently.



Béla Baptiste
Coming from family of dancers, potters, photographers, singers and writers living cross over Europe: from Belfast to Cyprus, via London, Tartu and Belgrad. From 2010-2018, he studied directing at the Academy of Film and television in Vienna under the supervision of professors Michael Haneke, Peter Patzak, Wolfgang Murnberger and Wolfgang Thaler.
