A backpack that travels the world
An old green military backpack is the thread in the collaborative movie 'The Owner' by 25 directors from 13 countries and 5 continents; the movie premieres worldwide on the same day on 25th May 2012.
The trailer starts with a scene where a young actress in Berlin requires a backpack which is published in a magazine. The preview images and the trailer remember secret agent action, adventure mystery, psycho thriller, and morbide screwiness. The teaser ends with a fortune-teller who predicts: "You have to return the bag to its owner. Then the curse will be broken." This scene must had been shot in Vienna!
