Some things aren't textbook psychology. Nicoline (Carice Van Houten) learns this lesson when she lands a new job as a prison psychologist. Her first patient, Idris (Marwan Kenzari), is a convicted rapist. While her colleagues think that Idris has turned a fresh page, Nicoline believes his continuous flirting is a façade for deep-rooted manipulative behaviour. Can Nicoline keep Idris in line, or will he succeed in 'winning her over'? Halina Reijn's directorial debut terrifyingly captures a confrontational psychological power play.
