by BWW News Desk - Jul 13, 2015

Charlie and her roommates along with their friends could have never imagined that, after the birthday party of the night before, their morning would take a twisted turn with a macabre discovery: a box containing the head of a stranger. Because of their different personalities and also because of another unfortunate event, they can't decide on the right way to deal with it. Their disagreement ultimately triggers heated arguments and unsuspected passions. And as the story unfolds, the strain of their situation will take their relationship with one another to the very edge. Yet most shocking will be the answer to the main question that is on everyone's mind: who is the man whose head ended up in the box and... who brought the box into their apartment?

Dick not to mention heavy-weights of European literature like Henry Troyat, Georges Simenon just to name but a few. Since then, writing and particularly storytelling have become a big part of his life; something that he uses constantly to understand the world and the people around him. For he strongly believes that stories have the ability to help us answer the riddles of life all the while being entertaining. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, where he recently graduated from film school and can now write to his heart's content.
