Brief synopsis

Nach der Trennung von seiner Freundin ist der erfolglose Schriftsteller Paul in die neue Wohnung gezogen. Einsam und lethargisch versucht er sich mit dem Schreiben abzulenken, als er eines Abends eine merkwürdige Beobachtung in einem Fenster der gegenüberliegenden Wohnung macht und bald darauf überraschenden Besuch bekommt. Der Mix aus altmodischem Noir und modernen Psychothriller, zeigt die
Schattenseite eines jungen Mannes und dessen Abstieg in ein schwarzes emotionales Loch. Dadurch öffnet er Türen, die besser verschlossen geblieben wären.
