A young, seemingly guileless millionaire businessman, an unsuspecting, progressive, middle-class woman who meets and falls in love with him, a tortured ex-cop who gets entangled in their tragic love story, and a hardworking reporter with a never-say-die attitude - these are just some of the characters in this suspense-filled love story about what it means to hold on to everything that makes you, you.
‘Twisted Doubles’ is not just a story about double trouble. It examines human identity as it is defined for us by everyone else. It journeys through the identity trail as set by any bureaucracy, from birth to death and beyond. It explores the irony in trying to walk the legal path, whether tested, proposed, or new, in a world where humans increasingly find themselves reduced to any single thing that identifies them where it matters most.
Set in India, with the South Asian Tsunami of 2004 as a backdrop, ‘Twisted Doubles’ is a universal story of identity crises that will enthrall just as much as it will make you weep. A sensual romance, it will make you believe in true love.

Ο ΔΙΑΒΟΛΟΣ ΤΩΝ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΥΓΕΝΝΩΝ
(Greek edition) - horror
Εκείνη η νύχτα είναι καταλυτική για τη νεαρή Αμαλία.
Στο Χριστουγεννιάτικο πάρτι της σχολής της, όλα μοιάζουν ιδανικά, όταν την ώρα που πάνω από τους ξέφρενους ήχους ακούγονται μόνο οι φωνές των συμφοιτητών της να μετράνε αντίστροφα αποχαιρετώντας τον παλιό χρόνο πανηγυρικά.
Μια σκιά καραδοκεί στην ταράτσα του αμφιθεάτρου και την ώρα που τα δευτερόλεπτα κλείνουν την αλλαγή του χρόνου, ξεκινάει να διαπερνά το πλήθος σχεδόν αστραπιαία. Κολλάει πάνω στη σάρκα της κόβοντας της την ανάσα. Η σκιά γίνεται «ένα» μαζί της και αμέσως πέφτει λιπόθυμη μπροστά στην κοινή θέα των συμφοιτητών της.
Η σιωπή αγκαλιάζει το χώρο.
Τα παιδιά σχηματίζουν έντρομα ένα τεράστιο κύκλο γύρω της. Κάποια από αυτά προσπαθούν να τη συνεφέρουν.
Όταν καταφέρνει να ανοίξει τα μάτια της, τίποτα όμως δε θα είναι πια το ίδιο.
*Και αν υπάρχει Διάβολος... Ίσως η μόνη του μάχη να είναι αυτή έναντι στο Θεό.
