Inspired by an actual series of disturbing events that shocked the city of Amsterdam, Nothing to Lose director Pieter Kiujers' paranoid psychological thriller follows the disturbing journey of an ageing bus driver who becomes convinced that he's uncovered a major conspiracy. Upon losing both his job as a bus driver and his wife of thirty years, a fifty-nine year old bus driver bursts into Rembrandt Tower and takes a security guard hostage. His sole demand is to speak with the managing director of Philips, a company that once rented space in the towering office building. He's convinced that secret codes are being transmitted via widescreen television, and that an unsuspecting public is being secretly brainwashed. Later, key events from the assailant's past reveal that he may not be as delusional as he first appeared.
