Length 71min.

Country Latvia/Estonia


A collective rage boils within. He and hundreds of employees have just lost their jobs because their boss selfishly decided to sell his haven, proving once again that the poor pay the price while the rich reap the

rewards. But not this time. Dressed in his uniform and armed with his tools, he stealthily infiltrates his boss’s house and kills him in cold blood. His boss’s breathtaking girlfriend knows a similar fate. Justice has been served. With the bodies safely tucked away in the basement, the man in the orange jacket can finally celebrate his victory—time for the high life of classy restaurants, escorts and fancy cars. All he needs is to appropriate his victim’s identity. The good times will be short-lived, however. Just when he’s beginning to enjoy his new life, strange sounds start to trouble his sleep. His peace of mind is also affected by the intrusion of a strange character, not to mention this menacing silhouette that spies from afar, a silent observer that scrutinizes his every move. A nerve-wracking frenzy begins when paranoia invades the man with the orange jacket.
