Synopsis

Alex, a young and unemployed actor, is chosen by a film-maker to make a documentary. The film-maker records Alex’s daily life.

Alex is initially excited, thinking perhaps it will lead to stardom. When Alex lands a part in a stage play about a film-maker turned serial-killer Alex’s life takes an unexpected turn. A strange figure follows him, young girls circle him, he is attacked for no apparent reason but the ‘documentary’ is starting to look better.

Alex realises that this is all too much to be random. He suspects the cast from the play, then his new ‘girlfriend’, then anyone else who happens to cross his mind.

At the dress rehearsal of the play, it becomes clear to Alex that the film-maker is behind the unexpected events but it is too late for Alex to escape his close-up - roll camera!
