A young man drops out of university and goes to the police. He's done nothing wrong he just wants a job. A particular job. Playing the victim in murder reconstructions. Maybe by getting close to death he can manage to cheat on his own.
Netherlands, 1938. In a small town in the province of North Brabant called Oss, Johanna wants to change her life and quit the criminal gangs of the town. The harder she tries, the more she is involved.

Dariya the maid getting a boy to touch her large breast is just one incident that occurs when Yohan and Victor infiltrate two families, forcing young Liza and blind Ekaterina to appear in porn, but they are not so innocent themselves.
As some other reviewers on this site spoke positive about this movie my expectations were positive. I have to confess I found the movie utterly disappointing and terribly boring from the beginning to the end. The male characters were not credible to me, the psychology of the characters was not developed (you never got to know these people), the Russian males were portrayed in an embarrassingly cliché fashion (drunk, silly headgear). The whole film felt very amateur. Although attractive Syvia Hoeks did brighten it up a bit for me, she did not get much chance to show her acting talent (watch her in De Ontmoeting!). I cannot believe that this movie was sent in for a best foreign film award. It won my personal price for worse film I watched ever!
