Dark, melancholy look at the worst side of "stringer" journalism
Filo (E. Semoun), fresh from the film academy, is looking for a job. He does find one: Working as a stringer for the cynical Wolko (B. Reynolds), his job is to be at the sites of accidents, fires, rapes and robberies before the police. And to film raped women, burning firemen, dying supermarket guards and car crash victim, no helping allowed, no mercy given: The camera must stay on its victim no matter what. Slowly, he is becoming crazier, caught in the maelstrom of voyeurism and the lure of quick cash. As his girlfriend struggles to keep their relationship intact, his boss Wolko demands ever more sensational images... A bitter examination of the worst side of so-called journalism, created by a very good (though largely unknown) team.
