What is “Someone Dies Tonight” about.
To escape the harsh Berlin winter, the young German-Greek Jessica Dukakis (Jenny Paris) wants to celebrate her birthday on the warm island of Crete. She is accompanied by her boyfriend, the German soldier Paul (Maik van Epple), her best friend Maria (Raquel Montes), the daughter of a Spanish diplomat, and her buddy Franco (Morad Azzaaoui), an open-minded Spanish DJ. The four travelers miss their plane and decide to go to Greece by car. In anticipation of a two-day road trip across the Balkans, Jessica agrees to take a shortcut through Croatia, even though her father had warned her not to. The four get into a car accident with Marko, a friendly young Croatian man. He promises to fix their vehicle and invites them to stay overnight in his family’s beautiful hunting lodge nearby. What looks like relaxation after two days turns into a bitter struggle for bare survival. Unsuspecting, the group learns that Jessica’s father (Eric Roberts) owes a lot to the Mafia and that this horde of hit men is hounding them to kidnap his daughter.
