A French Special Forces soldier, Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts, The Danish Girl, Rust and Bone), returns home after a tour of duty in Afghanistan, and soon begins experiencing night terrors and flashbacks. These clear indications of PTSD will effectively end his military career, leaving him with limited employment options. He decides to accept a position as a bodyguard from a wealthy Lebanese businessman, the unscrupulous Whalid (Percy Kemp). Vincent starts by working security detail for a party at Whalid's luxurious estate, but when Whalid suddenly has to leave for a business trip, he entrusts Vincent to watch over his house as well as his family while he's gone. Throughout the weekend, Vincent becomes increasingly more captivated by Jessie (Diane Kruger, "The Bridge," Inglourious Basterds), Whalid's glamorous yet elusive wife. As he starts to fall for her, he also grows more and more suspicious that someone is after her and her son. This slow-burning psychological thriller takes viewers on a serpentine journey through the what-ifs and paranoia of a troubled man, endlessly questioning Vincent's sanity, and leaving the reality of danger a tightly wound mystery.
