ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- The 25th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival is underway and one of Monday night’s featured films is called ‘The Fitzroy.’ Co-Producers, James Heath and Liam Garvo joined us on FOX 2 News in the Morning to tell us more.

According to Heath and Garvo, the black comedy is set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950s in which the world is covered in poisonous gas.

The Fitzroy, a hotel located in a derelict submarine beached just off the coast of England, is the last place available to take a traditional seaside holiday. The hotel’s bellboy, cook, maintenance man, and general dogsbody, Bernard, faces a constant battle to keep the decaying hotel airtight and afloat. When he falls in love with a murderous guest, his challenges multiply and he becomes entangled in a web of lies, backstabbing, and chaos.
