The Christmas Shootout (2016)

A talk show doomed from the beginning because the high profile guests- a Saudi billionaire, a Hollywood actress, a local politician and a clueless American indophile refuse to get along, much to the horror of the show’s ambitious host who has been given one final chance to create a hit TV series.

Things go further downhill when a riot outside the premises prevent the guests & audience from leaving; the true colours of the guests become evident as their stage personas unravel under the stress of the shootout. An audience member tries to calm them down with psychotherapy, and in the process, they stumble onto the Christmas story… of a baby born into the midst of the chaos so he could help us make sense of it all.
