Detective Nick Cafmeyer (Van Rampelberg) investigates a child kidnapping and soon finds himself in a twisted world of abuse and sexual deviant. This Belgian adaptation of Mo Hayder's second Jack Caffrey novel is intense and restrained but almost parodically cheerless, making it somewhat one-dimensional.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
