Photographer Casper (Joachim Fjelstrup) is in a rut. He’s tired of his work in advertising, smug social events, and a relationship he’s been emotionally detached from in ages. So, when a former colleague presents him with a mysterious job offer, he accepts without hesitation.  Night after night, dodgy men take him to an apartment where he’s told to shoot videos of a naked woman without further explanations. We follow the bewildered photographer through his feverish quest where the distinctions between lust and obsession are blurred out. Director Carl Marott completes his techno-thriller with neon-bright imagery and a pulsating electro-score.
