Steve is a typical middle-aged macho, handsome and on his way up the career ladder. with Alexandra and their two children they present the perfect image of the happy, successful couple. It is Steve's birthday today, but when he returns home from the office, his wife and children have gone. His present is apparently a video tape labelled 'Play Me'. It shows Alexandra and the kids wishing him a happy birthday. Once the children have left the screen, Alexandra gives him an alluring striptease. Suddenly Stave sees a gun pointed to Alexandra's head. In a panic, he races for the phone but there's no connection. He tries to leave the townhouse only to find that his keys no longer fit the locks and the security shutters on the windows are locked tight. Remembering his mobile phone, he finds that his battery has been replaced by a bullet. Frightened and imprisoned in his own house, Steve has no choice but to watch the rest of the video tape...
