Accepting a package for the neighbours can have unexpected and fairly extreme consequences. Especially if your own mental health is not very stable.
A terraced house in Amstelveen. A man who feels alienated from his girlfriend, with whom he has a long-distance relationship, develops a dark fascination for the woman next door, whom he spies on from his home. A package he accepts for her and then opens turns out to have sinister contents – which squares with the screaming and crying he hears coming through the walls. Out of compassion or a distorted desire to be with her, he offers her part of himself.
