Six captive office workers are literally chained to their desks by deranged former regional manager Thomas Reddmann (Redd). He assigns his 'human resources' the impossible task of proving his innocence or suffering gruesome consequences.
In 1999, South African emigrant psychiatrist Colin Bouwer murdered his wife in what he thought was an undetectable manner. He was not counting on the skills and tenacity of New Zealand police and his colleagues in the medical profession.
Five contract workers have taken on the task of tracking a huge old sanatorium for hazardous waste before demolishing. They realize that the job is more than a search for asbestos and mercury. The enormous building has much darker secrets.

While the main title claims the plot is based on director Zarantonello's novel "Alice dalle 4 alle 5". However, no such novel was ever published: the film is in fact a remake-expansion on Zarantonello's earlier short film "Alice dalle 4 alle 5" (2000) See more »
Ok so I really didn't have high hopes for this movie to begin with but thought that it would maybe actually surprise me. But you guessed it it didn't. You knew how everything went down from the start, no surprises and it was just very boring. I felt myself thinking about something entirely different and almost dozing off. The idea with the butterflies etc etc was good in a sense and could have worked out but it fell flat. At least to me. Also none of the characters were likeable. I felt like everyone was a bit off? I don't know they just came out very unnatural to me. So my conclusion for this movie is that it was rather boring and I felt like I wasted my time if I have to be completely honest. Obviously a lot of people disagree with me here since most reviews are positive. So if you're into movies with so-so plot and love to hear random rock music in almost every god damn scene and unrealistic conversation go a head, knock yourself out.
