Hoi Polloi

Ready to spend your night shift with a psychopath?

How would you handle a fired employee with a gun? This psychological thriller keeps you guessing to the end.

Graveyard shift at Premium Sports Australia offers little excitement. No one stirs from their posts at the slumbering television station. Except Sam. A routine trip to the kitchen, finds him confronted by Jerome Smythe, a recently-fired employee. Their uneasy friendship sours as Smythe coerces Sam into joining him on a quest for vengeance. Fearful of what Smythe might do, he agrees.

What begins as anarchy soon develops into something far more sinister. Taking place during a single night, Hoi Polloi heightens the tension with each event. How far would you go to protect yourself - or others? If you've ever badmouthed one employee to another, this could be the outcome.
