The Corner (Andi Reiss) : Daniel Boyd, a forty year old banker has returned to the family home in North Wales, after more than twenty years working in London and the Middle East. With the recent death of his mother, he has agreed to oversee the demolition of the house, in order to make way for a lucrative Hotel and National Park complex. Fifteen years previously, in a bar in London at the beginning of 2003, Daniel had been approached by the CIA to ‘bankroll Basra’; to organise the extradition of millions of US Dollars from the Bank of Baghdad. Now back home in Snowdonia, the memories of that year come back to haunt him and Daniel’s mind begins to play tricks as he prowls the now empty house he grew up in. Will he profit from his supernatural experience, or only resume his rather selfish and non-contemplative existence?
