Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Based on a notorious real-life Belgian scandal involving corruption at the highest levels of industry and government, this film concerns fictional muckraking journalist Johannes van Buren (Herbert Flack), who is kidnapped by Billy (Peter van den Begin), the son of one of the accused. Billy interrogates the reporter about his ethics and his own deep dark personal secrets. Director Willem Wallyn had more that a passing interest in the so-called Augusta-Dassault imbroglio; his father was centrally involved in the affair.
