RED MIST is a story of love and hate and murder, set against the backdrop of industrial South Wales. A taut psychological thriller about three compelling, flawed, iconic characters. This is a classic film noir full of emotional danger and sensual attraction in the tradition of Body Heat, The Postman Always Rings Twice and Jagged Edge.
CHRIS has returned to his home town in Wales after losing his entire fortune in Canada. Once he was a millionaire; now he’s broke, living with his Mam and Dad. Working as a labourer in the local quarry. Angry, bitter, frustrated.
Chris is determined to reach the top again. And so he builds a friendship with his boss, the quarry owner BRINLEY. A tough, remorseless man.
Through his quick wits and bar-fighting skills, Chris goes from being a labourer to the Manager of the quarry. Success is within his grasp once more…
But Chris has fallen in love with ELAINE, the daughter of Brinley. A wonderful, wild, volatile woman. Their love is dangerous. Brinley is dangerous. And Chris himself is a tough, violent man.
Who has most to fear….?
