A 14-year-old video enthusiast is so caught up in film fantasy that he can no longer relate to the real world, to such an extent that he commits murder and records an on-camera confession for his parents.
Director Paulus Manker builds the tension in this dramatic and symbolic thriller to a shocking climax. Joseph Schmutz (Fritz Schediwy) is a self-effacing man who gets a job as a security guard at an abandoned paper mill. He shares his duties with another guard who is something of a goof-off. Eventually, the joker gets sacked for his behavior and Schmutz is left alone to guard the buildings. As time progresses, he becomes increasingly obsessed with his responsibilities to the property until his job as a guard begins to take over his life. He will guard the buildings against anyone and everyone -- even his boss, even a child he finds breaking windows, even the men who come to raze the buildings as ordered.
