An expert burglar in search of works of art breaks into a luxury New York fl at. The victim of a highly sophisticated alarm system, he ends up trapped on the premises. Isolated and unable to communicate with the outside world from this high-tech trap, he gradually organises his survival by trying not to go mad.
Willem Dafoe, a highly organic actor, who gives the impression of having lived through decades of cinema, puts his heart and soul into this role of a thief faced with extreme solitude. Art, isolation and the creative process come face to face at length in this highly anxiety-inducing tale.
