Storyline

Evgeniy started writing fake letters since he was 6 when he tried writing one to his imaginary friend. Throughout his lifetime, he has accumulated a letter from every country, except New Zealand. He writes a letter to a seemingly fake person in a seemingly fake city in New Zealand. After 4 weeks, he receives a letter back from the fake person stating that Evgeniy and the person have in fact met in real life. A lieutenant comes and searches his house to find a secret code hidden among the envelopes. Evgeniy is shocked and the lieutenant travels with him to board a plane later on. While Evgeniy and the lieutenant are traveling, Tanya (Evgeniy's wife) finds a letter in which the person from New Zealand proves to be true and states that Evgeniy will die in a plane.

could definitely make a good feature length film...
11 March 2013 | by kathleen-perez0See all my reviews

Could definitely make a good feature length film. Just throw in some extra scenes of envelope writing, more improvised dialogues, extend on the twist of the story, would be a decent length film.it is a good short film based on a true story.Whether,it is a great challenge to try to move your audience in short films.In this film, Evgeniy(Spacey) is a very interesting character.the movie starts with a amazing character of spacey whose hobby is to collect letters from different countries.A great performance, as always, from Spacey. He's all that saved this derivation from crashing like the plane. hope it'll be good feature length movie in time...
