In an interesting tale of romantic obsession, an introverted young projectionist catches some love-making going on in one corner of the dark movie theater where he works, and recognizes the woman involved as a popular television newscaster he adores. He manages to steal the key to her apartment from her purse, and later lets himself in. This is the first step that leads to a love affair between the two, but soon he becomes fixated on the woman - spying on her, needing to control the relationship totally. His attitude is a disaster waiting to happen. Writer, director, and editor Niklaus Schilling shot this drama with a video camera and then transferred the tape to celluloid film in the laboratory, perhaps adding a little "TV verité" to the end product, but also creating a lot of graininess in the process.
