While on an extravagant vacation in the Turkish Riviera, a young, beautiful woman is suddenly thrust into a toxic world of violence and cruelty when her new drug lord boyfriend turns out to be an abusive monster in this stylish art-house thriller.

Winner of the Next Wave Award at the 2018 Austin Fantastic Fest, "Holiday" marks the feature debut of Swedish-born writer-director Isabella Eklof, who previously co-written the screenplay for last year's dark Swedish romantic fantasy fable "Border."

Featuring a breakout performance by newcomer Victoria Carmen Sonne as the abused girlfriend who is stuck on a nightmarish summer vacation, the Danish-Swedish film premiered to good notices at last year's Sundance Film Festival and has since been racking up mostly positive reviews from critics. "An exceptional feature debut," says the Hollywood Reporter. While IndieWire called it, "quite the conversation-starter..."

"Holiday" is coming to U.S theaters in February with a VOD release to follow.

synopsis:
Young and beautiful Sascha discovers her dream life of luxury, recklessness and fun comes at a price when she is welcomed into the "family" of her drug lord boyfriend at his holiday villa in the port city of Bodrum on the Turkish Riveria. Physical and psychological violence are a way of life for this gangster family, but when the velvet veneer is stripped raw to the bone, Sascha's eye drifts towards the "normal" life she is leaving behind--is it possible she could still be accepted by polite society?
