Hungarian Palace Hotel in Venice, Italy
The story follows various escapades going on inside a hotel: a film being shot, an entertainment news crew tracking the film's production, a mysterious surgical operation and a torture chamber in the hotel basement. All this is tied to a murder subplot.
Portions of the complex film will be split into four screens, some in two and some with only one screen, depending on the importance of the scene.
