|Synopsis||When sixty year-old retired Human Resources manager, Amanda Bailey, arrives at the "Strada Florida" hotel in Mid- Wales, early on Friday evening, hoping for a discreet weekend with her youthful companion, proceedings do not go to plan.
When he is dealyed, she meets supermarket entrepreneur, Sir Miles Campbell, who is also waiting for the arrival of a weekend companion. As the evening progresses and events unfold, the private lives of the staff and guests are brought into focus and their personality, morality and integrity are cruelly exposed.
The following morning the Police arrive on a routine inquiry and the guests hoping for a quite private weekend, find it's turning into a nightmare. Death leaves its calling card and emotions are stripped bare. Not a good day, and the last for some.|
