Title of the my B-Movie is:
- Helvetica -
The middle-class devil
who saved the human beings.

She is an half-blood devil, was born in 1980, in Switzerland. Her father (Fethor Stisel) is a devil, her mother (Criss Rad) a human. From her childhood, a deep hate for the father grow up in her heart: the father was a real evil! He was an ambitious devil that escape from the hell, because the principal was a ball breaker.
Fethor came on the earth and start a new life as a good guy. He became a brillant programmer at I.B.M. company, with a new name of Horst Feistel. With his team , he create the "Lucifer" algorithm, but his chief theft its creation and commercialize it with the name DES (Destroy Evil System) and became very rich.
After this swindle, Fethor left the computer company and became a wicked demon! Between 1975 and 1985, he start a new partnership with a young and eccentric man, William Henry Gates III. Fethor was one of the "hidden" inventor of the Operative System "Windows". This was the first of his wicked actions.
Fethor is still alive and cospire in the shadow, at present day, too.
You well know his last nasty thing: the Lehman Brothers's economical crack and the start of the Crisis of Economy in the world. He is a very cruel devil.

But first to became a bad-devil, he love a very gentle and delicious woman: a nurse of a little hospital, in Swiss. After some years of happiness, Helvatica (Helvy) was born.
She was a real love's fruit, but soon the father become bad and left his wife Criss. The baby grow up without a father and now, she hate Fethor and all the bad guys, especially all the devils that live on the earth (and they are a lot, be sure!).

Helvy became a beauty and strong half-blood devil. At 20, she enrol to an economy university and study for became a good businness woman. She dream to repair all the father's crimes.

Now she is 29 and is a great banker and manager of a many no-profit companies. But she isn't only a businness woman: in her second life, she's a hero!
Helvetica love all teh human beings and protect the human race from the auto-destruction and from the bad people.

One of her implacable enemy is Bob Plot (code name "Blue Dwarf"), an half-man dwarf came from the Hell's suburbs. Mr.Plot manage a big percentage of the industry of the weapons, across all the world. In 1995, based in Italy, he start a new science project, based on the rianimation of the deads, to use as military army.
With the money of the Mafia (called "The System") and protection of many businness men and politicians (Mr.Plot have a "Big Daddy" in Italy, that finance all his enterprise, called "S.B."), Bob Plot is one of the most dangerous enemy for all the good-guys and the best rival of Helvetica.

But as always happen, who hates... loves! So, Mr.Plot fight against Helvy, but he don't want to kill her. His purpose is to demonstrate to Helvy his power, and hopes that she is corriptible and became his girlfriend.

Is the World into Helvy or Mr.Plot's hands?
Could Mr.Plot broke the Helvetica's heart?
Or Helvetica could defeat the Blue Dwarf?

Who can say this... only stay alive we can know... or we can go to the cinema and see the end of the movie:
