One night, one murder - A forbidden passion and a big family secret.

As the members of the Ullich family gather at their palace in Vienna, their deceased ancestors suddenly appear and usher in a series of unforeseen events. Not only does the past unexpectedly become the present, criminal machinations are also revealed to be at work in a world in which ethics have been discarded and profit seems to be the main goal. On this journey through different eras, the young entrepreneur Philip Ullich and his newly alive great-aunt Renate fall for each other. While Philip battles his cousin for control of the family business, the ancestors reveal the true origins of the Ullich fortune. In this struggle it all comes down to who can be trusted in this web of lies, secrets and love affairs. It's a world where even death doesn't mean the end.

Night of a 1000 Hours is directed by Virgil Widrich (nominee IFFR Tiger Competition for Heller als der Mond (2000) and is starring Amira Casar (Saint Laurent, which was  nominated for the Palme d'Or 2014).
