How your life can change in the blink of an eye. Life is a routine of little more than tedium for Sam a blue collar security guard in Belgium. That all changes the morning when a suicide bomber enters the shopping centre Sam patrols and blows it to smithereens. In the carnage he does his best to retrieve dying victims from the smouldering ruins. The delirium, however, proves too much and Sam evacuates, running until he falls down with exhaustion. The shock of this experience appears to transport the security guard beyond the realms of possibility as he ghosts through the city a netherworld emptied of the living. Eventually Sam comes across one of the victims and then another. He soon discovers the unfulfilled hopes and dreams of each, stories that runs parallel with his own. But these phantasms can't prepare Sam for a final confrontation in which he will question the thresholds of existence and the role he has been willing to play.
