A curious young physician can't resist looking through a hole in the wall into the neighboring apartment. He becomes a voyeur as he watches an amorous couple having sex. When he looks through the hole another time and fears the girl is dead, he manages to enter her apartment, finding her chained to the shower rod and drugged. He alienates his girlfriend when he has an affair with the rescued neighbor girl. A final look through the hole in the wall finds the young doctor staring down the barrel of a gun. The screenplay was written collaboratively by Wim Verstappen and directors Pim De La Parra and Martin Scorsese.
