Jan 18 Pregau - A Town Of Secrets (Pregau - Kein Weg zurück / Mörderisches Tal - Pregau)
Blackmail. Betrayal. Murder. Some things are best kept in the family.
On first impression, nothing appears out of the ordinary in Pregau. But scratch the surface of this small Austrian town, and you'll uncover a terrifying underbelly of lies, corruption and violence. Police officer Hannes Bucher (Maximilian Brückner) knows this. It's why he has done all that he can to keep his head down and stay out of trouble. But when you're married into the Hartmann family clan that unofficially controls the town, it doesn't matter where you go, trouble will always find you. One night, after a momentary lapse in judgement, Hannes sparks a chain reaction of events that threatens to tear apart his family, and the once quiet world of Pregau. With the bodies starting to pile up around him, Hannes desperately tries to cover up his crimes, but finds himself spiralling deeper into trouble. Soon, there is nowhere left to run and no-one left to trust.
From writer-director and winner of the CIVIS TV Prize, Nils Willbrandt ("Nichts ist Vergessen", "Leberkäseland"), and starring Maximilian Brückner ("Sophie Scholl: The Final Days", "War Horse"), "Pregau" is a thrilling crime drama where nothing is black and white, and the audience is kept guessing to the very end.
Scripted Series / Crime Drama: 4 x 90' or 8 x 45'. Worldwide sales: Red Arrow International
