Summary

The story of Ellen and Vincent begins as that of a carefree amorous couple and takes place over a few days. The lovers go into an abandoned house. Out of curiousity they go into a bathroom and the door closes behind them. A foreboding eye watches them through a chink in the wall; someone terrorizes them and tries to pit them against each other.

Note

Sequences from the film The Dream (Sen, dir. Miloš J. Kohout, 2002) and audiovisual footage 8929-90 from the BBC Motion Gallery were used in the film.
