SYNOPSIS

Georges (Daniel Auteuil), a TV talk show host, and his wife Anne (Juliette Binoche), lead a perfect life of modern comfort and security. One day, their idyllic existence is disrupted by a mysterious videotape that appears on their doorstep. The tape reveals their comings and goings are being filmed by a hidden camera from across the street. There are no clues as to who sent it or shot it nor why.
Other tapes follow, each with more disturbingly intimate and increasingly personal footage. When the police do little to help, Georges launches into an investigation of his own. Secrets from his past are revealed and the walls of security he has built for his family begin to crumble.
