ABOUT THE FILM
Alone and adrift in Berlin, Australian Photographer Clare (Teresa Palmer) meets charismatic local Andi (Max Riemelt) and there is an instant attraction between them. But what begins as a passionate romance takes a sinister turn when Clare wakes up one morning to discover Andi has locked her in his apartment, and he has no intention of letting her leave, ever. Biding her time, Clare plots her escape as the walls of Andi’s apartment close in, all the while becoming drawn into a complex relationship with her captor.
