    • Synopsis
    • Young handsome RICO and the slightly older, dangerous-looking VICTOR are planning a kidnapping. After some time they kidnap the twenty-five year old LAURA. They work professionally, take her to an apartment in an almost empty building and tie her up to a bed in a soundproof room. They treat her terribly, remove her clothes and take pictures of her naked as evidence of her capture for the outside world.
      From then on a game unfolds in which no relationship is as it appears to be…

      It appears that it is no coincidence that Laura was chosen as the victim. Laura finds out to her dismay that she was kidnapped by her boyfriend: Rico. The latter is forced to explain that it’s all part of a PLAN to extract 4 million Euros from Laura’s wealthy father, with whom Laura has a very bad relationship. To make it appear as realistic as possible, things had to be done – unfortunately for Laura- in a rather humiliating way. Rico’s plan is to get rid of Victor at the last moment and run off together with Laura and the money. Laura is flabbergasted and has a dilemma. She does hate her father and she seems to be in love with Rico.
      Victor was a bit suspicious, but seems to open up slightly. He kisses Rico intimately, while Laura is still tied on the bed in the bedroom, in ignorance. It turns out Victor and Ricoy are having a relationship, which began when they were in prison together and the whole plan was formed.
      Laura’s father appears willing to pay the four million Euros in exchange for Laura. Victor, however, discovers the truth about Danny and Laura. He is deeply shocked and disappointed by this betrayal, but he doesn’t let it show. Victor and Danny take Laura to the place where the exchange will take place. At the last moment, Victor confronts Danny with his discovery and puts a gun against his head. Although Danny is the love of his life, he now has to murder him. Danny finds a way out, but is hit by a bullet. He tries to fight back and capture the money at his last strength. Finally, he has to make a choice.
