Strange things happen in Transylvania to Michael, an American scriptwriter on his way to an isolated lodge in the middle of the Transylvanian mountains to meet the English producers with whom he is to sign a contract for his new film.

What happens when you pick up a hitchhiker?

Michael, an American scriptwriter, soon finds out when he picks up an Englishman in the middle of a Transylvanian forest. Touchstone – in fact the ghost of a former court jester – places him in some unimaginable situations of life and death. Despite being a firm believer in non-violence, Michael is forced to become a cold-blooded serial killer.

Strange things happen in Transylvania to Michael, an American scriptwriter on his way to an isolated lodge in the middle of the Transylvanian mountains to meet the English producers with whom he is to sign a contract for his new film.

 

On the way he meets Touchstone –a jovial Englishman who is in great spirits, despite having just been mugged and abandoned in the middle of the forest and, by all appearances, just about to put a noose around his neck and hang himself –and takes him with him. However, as soon as they reach the mountain lodge, Michael realises that Touchstone has disappeared, as if into thin air, leaving only his footprints in the snow leading to the lodge door.

 

Afterwards Touchstone reappears and Michael makes another amazing discovery: he is the only one who can hear and see Touchstone. Touchstone, who gradually reveals that he is the ghost of a former English court jester who took refuge a few centuries ago at the court of a Transylvanian king, puts Michael in a series of increasingly difficult situations, seemingly with no way out.
