Director: Gerda Kordemets
Cast: Ivo Uukkivi, Kärt Tomingas, Jaanus Rohumaa, Anu Lamp
One of the most successful actions to take down a person, an institution, a company or a government is to provoke a scandal. Whatever it is related to, there is always someone to blame and someone to pay the price. Eurochannel invites you to be thrilled by one of the most scandalous events ever presented on Estonian TV: Alpine House.
Alpine House is one of the biggest Estonian TV productions of the past few years. Broadcast on prime time in its home country, this series tells a story of drama in sports, corruption in politics, and the greed of human race. It all begins when Estonia’s women’s swimming team is stripped of their Olympic win – the athletes have doped and the medals must be returned.
As a crisis explodes in the country, an internationally renowned consultant is called to diffuse it. The public relations expert is an icy and tough professional, who covers up political crises and manipulates the media. He’s got his own methods; he works alone and always gets the desired result. It is discovered that the National Olympic Endowment and a bank closely associated with the ruling party are involved in the doping affair; the scandal threatens to escalate, threatening to bring down the whole government.
Alpine House, a production with a budget of 100,000 euros, gained popular and critical acclaim for its gripping plot, with an overall rating of 117,000 viewers per episode in a country of just over a million inhabitants. Eurochannel invites you to enjoy a dramatic series that examines how different spheres — sports, big business, science and politics – become intertwined, and that is reminiscent of the Andrus Veerpalu doping scandal.
Estonia’s women’s swimming team is stripped of their Olympic medals because of doping, and a scandal begins. With the help of Martin Kütt (Ivo Uukkivi), an internationally renowned crisis expert, the team aims to solve the disaster. However, as Martin investigates the doping, it emerges that even government officials are involved in the affair.
