Synopsis

A contemporary adaptation of Agatha Christie's whodunit surrounding the death of a malicious American businessman aboard the Orient Express en route from Istanbul to Paris. Detective Hercule Poirot enlists the help of his friend Wolfgang Bouc to secure a last minute first-class cabin on the Orient Express to Paris. Shortly after the journey begins, an American businessman is found murdered in his berth with multiple stab wounds. Believing the murderer is still aboard the train, Poirot agrees to lend his expertise in solving the crime by sifting through the conflicting clues. In doing so, he interviews the eclectic group of passengers, including Mrs. Hubbard, a chatty, opionated middle-aged woman who turns up clues in the oddest places; Nina Alvarado, an elderly, well-traveled, formidable-looking name-dropper; and Mary Debenham, a young and beautiful woman with an impeccable British accent who is involved in a secret affair.
