Vineta - The Secret Project tells the story of Sebastian Faerber, a leading architect, workaholic and neglectful father with a heart condition, who is summoned to a secret project in a remote villa. There, 6 men meet for a workshop, led by the secretive Dr. Leonhard and his assistant Nina, to supposedly design the perfect futuristic city. But it is not long until Faerber starts to suspect that Dr. Leonhard is leaving him and the others in the dark as to his true intentions.
