At night, a young immigrant spies on people to compensate for the lack of a social life. What happens when he grows obsessed with a colleague?
Daniel is a Cuban immigrant who has moved to Rotterdam. To him, the city is unpleasant and unfamiliar, his loneliness further aggravated by his job in a warehouse. Due to a lack of contact and a social life, he gets satisfaction out of spying on people and taking their picture, also in their own homes.
