SOBOR

Written by Alexander Zanzer 

Switzerland January 2017. Two men and their boss (Goddard) are chasing an old man. They want to know where the diary is of an officer of the guard of the Tsar. The diary mentions the hiding place of the last will of Tsar Nikolai II. 

The Aristocrats plan a new SOBOR (gathering) to determine the heir of the last Russian Imperial Dynasty. All the pretenders from all the dynasties of the past will be assembled.

What they don’t know is that the diary also mentions an enormous treasure hidden by the officer on order of the Tsar and meant to revive the monarchy in case of the death of the Tsar and his family. The aristocratic rivalry and political struggle transforms gradually into a treasure hunt. The Swiss banks holding the treasure have no intention to part with the finances taking in account the accumulated interest over 100 years. They use a lawyer, an ex-secret agent, Goddard, to get rid of pretenders and take legal possession of the treasure.

The aristocrats nominate two young heirs to their families Gaylord and Pauline to conduct the search. They have to deal with secret agents and the most dangerous of all, Goddard. Goddard tries to corrupt Gaylord -by introducing him into the decadent world of big money and sexual pleasures-. 

The quest takes place in the decadent world of finances, dictators and bankers and brings the events of 1917 into the present day.
