An adaptation of Melanie Joosten’s novel, this disturbing thriller follows Australian photojournalist, Clare (Palmer), as she searches for adventure whilst travelling alone in Europe.
In Berlin she meets local English teacher, Andi (Riemelt), and embarks upon a holiday romance, with the two ending up in Andi’s apartment. When he leaves for work the next day and Clare finds herself locked in, she initially thinks it is an innocent mistake. When Andi returns, however, it is clear that he has no intention of letting her go.
