Drama A tense and intriguing psychological drama inspired by a true story. When Pierre switches his dayshift to the less popular NIGHTSHIFT at a bottle factory, to earn more money, little does he realise what a bad move that was. Here, he encounters the charismatic and violent Fred, who initially offers the hand of friendship, but soon starts to bully Pierre without reason. A mortified Pierre finds himself trapped by this cruel tormentor. It isn’t until his wife suspects trouble and young son threatens to take matters into his own hands, is Pierre forced to face up to his own masculinity. A strikingly original and riveting drama that delves deeply into the complex male psyche.
