The Radicalization of Jeff Boyd
A businessman who lost everything, and a young, idealistic woman, find each other. Together, they want to change the world, and discuss a dangerous plan that soon becomes reality.
A businessman from Switzerland, Jeff Boyd, dreams of living in Australia where his friend Morton, a crazy bakery shop owner, has already settled down. Morton tries to persuade him to join soon and help in the shop. Frank, who lets Jeff stay at his place while he’s abroad, advises to invest money with a commodity trading firm he knows. When Jeff signs the investment contract, he’s full of hope to leave the country with a pocket full of cash. After a phone call with his trader and a heavy argument with his boss at work, Jeff’s world collapses. That’s when he meets Wendy who’s also in a delicate state after losing her job. They discover they are soul-mates. Their worries about the world and what it develops into comes more and more to light. They want to make a change, and develop a dangerous plan.
The film exposes the dilemmas in life about the wrong and right choices we make, sticking to one and wanting more which eventually contradicts the law of life we all have experienced, like greediness, illusions and unrealistic dreams. Different interests collide, as we see it only our way, until they clash, each having their own history: family matters, financial independence, wanting to change the world and looking for the easy way out. Until we wake up and realise that it’s too late…
