Un réalisateur sans succès se retrouve à un festival dans la République autonome du Karastan et accepte de tourner un film sur un héros national, malgré le coup d’État qui se prépare.

When down-on-his-luck filmmaker Emil Forester is invited to Karastan for a restrospective of his 2½ films, he jumps at the chance. But Karastan is a far complicated place than he imagined.

// Ripper Street: Amazon Prime Instant Video will air extended episodes//

According to Digital Spy

Prime customers will be able to watch the new extended episodes from late 2014, with the show being cut down to fit an hour-slot when it airs on BBC One in 2015.

"We don’t have a 60-minute slot to fill at 9pm," explained Chris Bird - Amazon Instant Video Film & TV Strategy Director.

"So we said to Richard [Warlow, series creator], ‘We want you to write this season completely unencumbered. If you want to write a 70-minute episode, write a 70-minute episode’.

// Lost in Karastan: Trailer//

There is some confusion as to the name of the movie.  Initially it was called Epic, the director is calling it Welcome to Karastan, but a producer is calling it Lost in Karastan.  Here’s a trailer!
