In this Swiss noir-styled thriller, shot in high-contrast black-and-white, insurance broker Karl (Stefan Kurt) is on a deserted street at night when he sees a body on the sidewalk. Fleeing the scene is blonde Martha (Susanne Luening), who returns and soon becomes very involved in Karl's life. According to the paranoid Martha, she's being pursued by a strange group, the Inhumans. Are they actually prowling the basement of the hospital where she works? Shown in 1997 at the Locarno and Toronto film festivals.
