In this remake of a Flemish thriller, five bosom friends share an apartment for their sexual sprees. The extramarital fun is cut short when a murdered woman is found there.

Five friends secretly share a chic apartment that serves as a refuge for their extramarital side-jobs. When one of them finds a dead woman fettered to the bed one fateful day, the question arises which member of the circle is responsible for the murder. For the remake of the Flemish box-office hit, the ingredients stayed largely unchanged. The Famous Flemings were replaced by a Dutch star cast and Antwerp became Amsterdam, but thriller author Saskia Noort sensibly stuck close to the original screenplay - in her adaptation, only the female roles were emphasised a little more. The shooting period was a déjà-vu for a large part of the Belgian crew. The maker of the original, Erik van Looy, temporarily took the director’s seat after director Antoinette Beumer and Belgian cameraman Danny Elsen were out of circulation for some weeks due to a serious accident on the set.
