Markus is in his late 40s and works in a security technology company
His wife abandoned him ten years ago with their daughter Emma, and Markus has been sinking into loneliness ever since. He tries online dating, but experiences one rejection after another.
Emma is 17, freshly in love and, with her boyfriend Deniz, experiencing the closeness and bond that Markus longs for. When he overhears Emma and Deniz having sex, he develops a dangerous obsession with his daughter's relationship. While Markus initially tries to control his lust, another failed dating attempt leads to him installing a hidden camera in Emma's room. By witnessing the young love, he blossoms and takes new courage to live. He finds something like a friend in Deniz, and his relationship with Emma also seems to improve. Markus only realizes that he has crossed an unforgivable line when it is already too late.
