10 BULLETS

Athens, present day: a place where financial inequality and social instability prevail.

Two homeless people find themselves caught in the middle of a mafia shootout and steal a gun loaded with ten bullets from the fallen successor to the Serbian mafia throne. They decide to use the gun to seek justice and reclaim their chances in life. They are being hunted by the mourning Serbian mafia boss, who is also escalating a war against the Albanians who ordered the hit. A female detective is entrusted with both cases and finds herself trapped between her desire to do her duty, and her own personal interests.

FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILD

For the Sake of the Child is family-relationship universal series which raises dramatic social, familial, and personal issues. By telling the story of a murder committed by normative people in order to keep custody of their foster child, a son of an African refugee woman who abandoned him in hospital with fractured arms when he was an infant. It raises the question of how far are you willing to go in order to keep a child? But at the heart of the series there is even a bigger question, one that might not have an answer- do we really know what is in the best interest of a child?

The series is inspired by true events that happened to the creator Guy Meroz and his wife, who are foster parents to a small boy abandoned by his refugee mother.

 

Produced by: United Studios of Israel | Created by: Guy Meroz | Written by: Guy Meroz | Country: Israel

 

 

A GOOD YEAR

Disgraced civil engineer ERIK and small time crook LENNY meet in the Ardennes. Erik has inherited a country house near Hitler’s 1940 headquarters but is unable pay the taxes. Erik has solicited Lenny’s help to break into the house and steal everything of value.

By accident, they discover a concealed cellar in which Erik’s great-uncle, a resistance leader, kept tools for forging documents. The cellar also contains bottles of a 1937 Château Rycler.

While downing one of the bottles the well-oiled men cook up an idea: Hitler’s Shelter + the stuff in the cellar = a way to make money. Using the counterfeit tools, they forge a letter by Hitler to his tank-general in which he rewards him with a bottle of wine. When Lenny contacts an antiquarian, the bottle and letter sell for a considerable sum.

Lenny and Erik realize that they are sitting on a goldmine. Or do they?

ICE VALLEY

University students Thea and Amir become obsessed with investigating the mysterious disappearance of their new housemate Ida during a hike in Ice Valley. Ice Valley is haunted by centuries of evil deeds and when a black metal group performs a black mass there, they unleash the Bøe family curse.

When a chain of bizarre and frightening events happen, Thea is convinced that supernatural forces are at play. The body of a girl is found perfectly preserved in Ice Valley’s glacier. She looks exactly like Ida; however, she died over 100 years ago! Amir’s atheism is challenged as he struggles to scientifically understand the strange phenomena. Their quest to find the truth will lead them through the rich tapestry of Bergen city’s historical past, and force them to confront the spine-chilling myths of Ice Valley. The truth is much more personal and sinister than Thea ever could have imagined.
