Reeling from a notably brutal divorce linked to a major misstep at his (former) office, Stef buys a house in the country in search of solitude. Before he can unpack his belongings, an intruder shows up, bath towel slung over his shoulders, claiming the house is his. It appears no one told him the house had been sold. The two have a fight and Stef calls the cops, but when the police arrive there’s no trace of the towel-toting invader. Shortly thereafter Stef learns the previous owner, Theo, died in the tub under suspicious circumstances. It’s not long before Theo returns with a vengeance, hell-bent on destroying Stef’s life, at least until he removes himself from the premises. Though it sounds like a ghost story, Geoffrey Enthoven’s HALFWAY is actually something far more personal as Stef and Theo’s cat-and-mouse game escalates to a humorous yet revelatory game of wits.
