Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly.Written by

Klaus Menzel's debut as a director is a compelling combination of a Film Noire and a tragic lovestory. "Fascination" is more about the consequences
of a crime than crime itself. It deals with obesession, distrust and intrigue that change the perfect world of a high society family into a living nightmare. Grand actors like Jaqueline Bisset and Stuart Wilson but also the newcomers Adam Garcia and Alice Evans convince as lead characters in this "dangerous" lovestory. The soundtrack contributes perfectly to this exciting and unconventional thriller that made the audience hold their breath until the very end.
