Inspired by classic American values and freedom, this striking French-language comedy-drama sees ex-con Joris Fragnière returning home to Horizonville after a 25 year absence.
Station Horizon tells the story of an Americana-obsessed Swiss valley community fighting for survival against the threat of modern society. To honor his recently deceased father, Joris returns on parole to the Wild West atmosphere of Horizonville. He immediately finds himself face-to-face with demons from his past: his brother, Charly, his childhood rival, Raymond, and Latin beauty, Cheyenne. Above the Station Horizon gas station, the Valais and American flag fly side-by-side. Outside, classic American cars, pickup trucks and motorbikes gleam, while horses graze in the meadows. At night, the locals head to the neon-lit Bar 66 for poker, strippers, country music and fighting.
Station Horizon is a poignant and original series packed with good humor. The oddly endearing inhabitant of this strange town - a distant cousin of US Wyoming - are looking for elsewhere, but find it at home. In deciding to stay, Joris must confront his past and his future.
