Synopsis

WELCOME TO THE CLUB is a drama/black comedy about suicide. KATE, a manic-depressive actress in her early 30s, checks into a suicide hotel, determined to kill herself. The hotel offers a variety of suicide options and promises total privacy, far away from the prying eyes of overprotective relatives. Here, Kate meets VIKTOR, a room service waiter, who comes up to her room to explain the hotel’s ‘menu’. The two of them end up spending the night together and fall in love. In the early morning hours, Kate checks out and immediately invites Viktor to move in with her. She now returns to work and lives a happy, if somewhat alcohol-fueled, existence with the enigmatic Viktor, who seems to be harboring problems of his own. After a while, however, Kate’s suicidal tendencies return in full force…
