Experimental film in which ten monologues are used to illustrate the phenomenon of serial killer. Using a combination of authentic and fictional sound fragments, pornographic films and found footage, the film shows the context in which serial murders take place. Director Ian Kerkhof does not try to fathom the serial murderer, but rather makes a statement about disorder and decay in contemporary society. Kerkhof sees serial killers as symptomatic of the end of an era; their lack of motives reflects our waning faith in politics, religion and philosophy.
