'The Final Report of Arlen Pickett' is a psychological thriller; a story of love and obsession, where the everyday collides with the increasingly unsettling and bizarre.
Arlen Pickett's story begins when he arrives in a British city to interview people about their sex lives. He's a market researcher who lives for his job and pretends to his colleagues that he has a family. But all that changes when he meets Beatrice, a charismatic zookeeper, during the research, and falls in love with her. Soon he's entangled in her strange tale of lies and abuse, and leaves his old life very far behind.
Arlen tells us his story with deadpan humour, leading us through twists and turns, until we reach the dark heart of his report.
