Ink-black thriller and Covid satire in one. A small budget, a modest cast and crew and a short shooting period – but this film with a memorable Victor Löw makes all tests come out positive.
Shortly after his father passes, the over-concerned Jacob (Victor Löw) loses his job and at the start of the first Covid lockdown moves in with his single mother (Leny Breederveld). He wants to protect her at all costs against the virus. But it is soon clear that the obsessed son is probably a graver danger to his mother than the virus is. With his sister Magda (Monic Hendrickx) as an apprehensive witness, Jacob is increasingly influenced by an online conspiracy theoretician and gradually loses his right mind. The makers previously demonstrated, with the horror movie De poel, they can give the genre a nice Dutch twist.
