Crystal Inferno

Synopsis: At the 20th floor of a skyscraper, a gas leak has started a fire. Anne and Ben Bronson, two teenage kids, are trapped in a fiery inferno 20 storeys above the ground, while the fire is spreading throughout the entire building. From the 60th floor, their parents, Brianna and Tom, who were about to sign their divorce papers, will have to fight together to save their family from the flames. Even if Brianna is a brilliant structural engineer, will she find out a way to stop this uncontrolled fire ?




Just come in like a

bull in a China shop.

This isn't the wild

west, it's Europe.

And you need to be a

hell of a lot more subtle

when dealing in my

business affairs.

You hired me because

I have a track record

for solving problems.

Okay, sometimes my methods

are not exactly conventional,

but then again, that's

why you hired me.

Now, listen, Beaumont,

you personally have

50 million euros

riding on this project,

and my job is to

protect your investment.

Ah, everything satisfactory?

Are you making a joke?

[BEAUMONT] No, certainly

not, what's wrong?

Bribery, Mr. Beaumont.


And who exactly are you

accusing of this terrible thing?

I intend to find out.

Your associate here

polluted a substantial sum

to ignore serious problems in

your electrical installation.

I don't know how things

work in the United States,

but here, we have integrity

in our construction practices.

I merely offered

to compensate you

for your efforts, Ms. Hoff.

Do you really think

I'm that kind of person?

Come on, Eveline, we're

trying to work with you,

not against you...

Let me apologize

for Mr. Steele's

poor communication skills.

I want to inform you,

I will be reporting

your business practices

to the authorities.

Eveline, please, I

don't think we have...

Good day, sirs!

Ms. Hoff, let me

take you downstairs.

No, thank you, I know the way.

I'm sure you do, but

you're not going anywhere.


Not without the safety key.

She's texting someone.

Well, leave nothing to

chance, as you put it.

A cellphone jammer.




Watch your step.



Bury her.



What a beautiful day.



Come on, you can't be

bored with the city yet.

So much to see and do.

The Vanderburgh

Museum, St. Paul's,

that guy Ruben's house.

St. Paul's, museums, you

know we did all that stuff,

- the kids hated it.

- Yeah, I hear ya'.

I can't stand all that

tourist nonsense myself,

I wish they would

just tear it all down,

and let us build it right.

Tom, we'd make a killing.

I don't know, how about the zoo?

The zoo?

Oh my god, no, no, it would

remind me way too much

of my day to day existence.


Hello darkness.

Hey, Ben!

Do not chase your sister,

we're here to have a

good time in the park!

Put your electronics away, okay.

What's goin' on

with you and Brianna?

Married bliss wearing

thin, honeymoon over?

Honeymoon was 15 years

ago, James, remember?

[JAMES] Is it that long?


What'd I just tell you?

[JAMES] I told you I would

be there for you, remember?

Easy, easy, brother, I'm not

lookin' for a divorce lawyer

especially not one

as expensive as you.

Expensive, come on, you

know I'll give you a discount.

No, we just need to

figure some stuff out.

She's just on the

road all the time,

and she's just

focused on her work.

I know it's a cliche,

but there's just no

time for us anymore.

[JAMES] You sure she doesn't

do somethin' on the side?

Yeah, because that's

really what I need

to hear right now,

man, thank you.

It's the number one

reason spouses go cold.

James, please, shut up.

Alright, consider this.

Do you even know what

or who she's doing

right now in Paris,

city of lovers?





In conclusion,

the UBX Tower built

by Beaumont & Associates

has been designed

to be one of the

most energy efficient

and safest buildings

on the market today.



Well, thank you

very much, Brianna.

That means a lot coming

from a structural

- engineer of your caliber.

- You're very welcome, Hans.

Now, I just need to oversee

the physical inspection

to ensure that your dream

has been fully realized.

Sure, and I look forward to

continuing our partnership.

So, you're

confirming that Brianna

will continue the project.

Of course, we already

talked about that.

Basic due diligence

before any acquisition.

Of course.

[HANS] Alright then,

that's it for today.

We'll have a decision for

you in the next quarter.

Fantastic, and we're still

on for dinner this evening.

Oh yes, we have a table

reserved for eight o'clock

in my favorite restaurant.

I would appreciate it if

Mrs. Bronson would join us.

- I'm afraid that won't be...

- Hans...

On a project of this magnitude,

it's imperative that we all

feel comfortable

about each other.

And now that Mrs.

Bronson is involved with,

how do call it...

Our ongoing partnership.

Let me talk to her.

Brianna, I'm afraid

you'll have to spend

one more night in Paris.

But I'm on the next

train back to Antwerp.

Please, Brianna, Beaumont

is known for being kind of...


I'd really love for things to

go smooth between all of us.

- Sure, of course.

- Thank you.


Call Tom.

Anne, take the ref.



[ANNE] Stop it, stop it!

[TOM] Don't hit your sister.

[ANNE] Dad, you're going down!

[TOM OVER PHONE] Hey there,

this is Tom, leave a message.

Hey, honey,

something's come up.

The client wants

me to stay later,

so I'm gonna have to take the

train home tomorrow morning.

Call me, okay, love you, bye.
