SYNOPSIS & PROJECT

In order to finish their term papers, the two zoology students and longtime friends, Greg and Michael, embark on an expedition into unexplored wolf territory.
After a long hike, they pitch their tents in a remote spot in the forest. On the second day, Michael, who is the more introverted and less confident of the two, catches sight of a strange young woman washing herself in a stream.
Michael is deeply attracted to the woman and becomes increasingly distracted, neglecting the real purpose of their mission. Greg meanwhile, grows resentful and jealous. The fateful situation escalates.

Trapped is a film about a deep friendship between two men. A friendship put to the ultimate test in the face of an absurd and tragic coincidence.

'Trapped' is a Swiss feature film project looking for alternative production, marketing and financing options. The film was released in cinemas in 2011 and was distributed by Rialto. He now has over 2 million views on YouTube (as of January 2024)
