If only these walls could speak... The film, which is both a documentary and a criminological testimony, is an illustration of this saying. An anonymous criminal captures a young woman and keeps her in an abandoned house for several days. He does not torture her; he... films her. Step by step, the viewers of the pseudo—documentary penetrate into the miserable and small world of the film amateur; they learn to understand the „soul” of this mysterious empty house, which is the role the poor film amateur plays for himself and the others. Disgust turns into curiosity — how will this psychological execution end?
