In this dense and paranoid thriller the traumatized ex-soldier Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts) becomes a bodyguard to the wealthy trophy wife Jessie (Diane Kruger). Trapped in her giant palace they begin to take a liking to each other while their lives seem threatened by unknown dangers. The question is if these threats exist in reality or if they’re just hallucinations courtesy of the soldier’s brain.
