    Boiling point is a dark, modern noir tale of deceit, betrayal and murder that questions what justices mean and how far should we go to find out the truth

    Boiling point is a tense noir style interrogation that asks questions on the definition of right and wrong. The majority of the film is shot in one location, a dingy boiler room, with two characters pitched against each other in a battle of wit and mind.
    With the minimal location, cast and effects the film would require a relatively low budget.
    The story plays around with the audiences alliances with characters particularly the protagonist and antagonist.

    The project takes place in the aftermath of the questionable murder of Sarah Hughes, a local house wife. Owen Davis, a mysterious private investigator, is interviewing Paul Connors, a local delinquent who he suspects has a big part in the murder. During the interrogation more and
    more is revealed about the death, but as each piece of the puzzle fits in to place more questions are
    asked about the picture it reveals. Did Connors have a part in the murder? Is Davis as righteous as he
    thinks? And why is Connors complying with a brutal citizen interrogation?

    The film starts with a quite by the book interrogation from Davis receiving a cocky and confident response from Connors, however the pace is turned on its head when its revealed that
    Davis has more than a professional interest in the case and the interrogation is thrust into an anger
    driven attack that asks the question is it just to do anything for the truth.

    Boiling point is a dark, modern noir tale of deceit, betrayal and murder that questions what justices mean and how far should we go to find out the truth.
