Murdered by my Boyfriend Murdered by my Boyfriend


A bipolar, bigoted, junkie cop manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive period, until he finally meets his match… himself.

With the Christmas season in full swing, Detective Bruce Robertson is winding down at work and looking forward to his trip to Amsterdam, for a weekend of debauchery and the psychological manipulation of his ‘best friend’. The last thing Bruce needs is a trivial murder case to solve; despite it providing an ideal opportunity to eliminate his rival colleagues in the race for promotion – a promotion Bruce so desperately craves. But our hero has other obstacles to overcome, including: alcohol & drug addiction, a dramatic deterioration in his mental health, and some increasingly demanding extra-marital affairs.
