Off Screen

When an irrational man steps into the Amsterdam office of a large consumer electronics producer and takes all the workers hostage, the authorities are on high alert. The man’s actions come exactly six months after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, and everyone automatically thinks of a terrorist attack.
