The Booth at the End: Series 1 and 2 (DVD)
Xander Berkeley stars in this chilling psychological thriller from Michael Eisner's studio Vuguru, written by Christopher Kubasik, about what happens when you make a deal with the devil.
How far would you go to get what you most desire?
Xander Berkeley (The Walking Dead / Being Human) is the mysterious man who sits at the booth on the end in a small-town American diner.
Different desperate individuals that meet with The Man must each make a Faustian pact and enter into a contract to complete a certain task set by The Man, in exchange for receiving what their heart most desires.
A father whose child is dying of leukaemia. An elderly woman who wants to restore her husbands failing memory. A nun who no longer hears the voice of God. A man who wants to wipe out every trace of his second marriage. Each can make their fondest desire a reality, but only if they complete the task he assigns them. A task that can have deep, even deadly consequences.
One must rob a bank; another must protect a little girl; one has to make a number of people cry; another is instructed to build a bomb and set it off in a crowded restaurant. Sometimes the assignments are in direct opposition to one another, sometimes the clients have to work together.
Each story is revealed at close quarters from the same spot in the diner, through dialogue in which The Man shifts from confessor to therapist to puppetmaster. As the stories begin to intersect, some clients mess up or change their minds, while others complete their task only to discover that what they wished for isnt what they really wanted after all.
