Logline: 
With ruthless pyramid sellers fronting his new wine business Eddie is certain of success if he can keep them in the dark long enough for the £13 million scam to work.
Synopsis/Details: 

Eddie wants his new network marketing company to be the best, and he has set himself a target of the 1st National Conference in twelve weeks to do this. To achieve his aim Eddie has head-hunted the top people in the industry to be his front-line distributors. At the company launch he draws no distinction between motivation and manipulation, making it clear that top players get cars and holidays, losers are out.

In his arrogance Eddie reneges on his agreement with Stella, who, having previously ripped off Craig and Dawn, forms an unholy alliance with Frank, a man not to be messed with if only for his connections with the head of the local mob, his cousin Lol. Yet only when Frank and Lol remove Sean for stepping into their territories and discover a previously unknown connection between Sean, Craig and Dawn, do things take a serious turn for the worse for Eddie.

Lol, an upfront villain, is put out by Eddie’s lies and sets a hacker, his nephew Tony, on Eddie’s trail. The trouble is that he is already one step behind Dawn, a woman desperate to save her marriage. Dawn’s discovery leads to the truth behind Eddie’s company: it is a front for a £13 million pyramid selling wine scam that culminates in the 1st National Conference and she is just too late to stop him. Or is she?

The Writer: Alan Fleet

I started out as a novelist and Woollyback was my first novel to be published in July 2000. Two years later this was selected by the UK Film Council for a tutored adaptation at Bournemouth Film School which in turn led to me completing a Masters in Screenwriting in 2006. To date I have made five short films, the first of which, Giri, won four festival awards, written five novels and one novella, completed a six-part TV drama and written seven feature screenplays, one of which, Summerisle, is a spec sequel to The Wicker Man that Robin Hardy had expressed interest in directing through personal contact before his untimely death.
