Teenage siblings, Bianca and Tomas, are recent orphans and not sure how to navigate adulthood. Along with some badass friends, they concoct an elaborate scheme to rob an aging movie star and one-time Mr. Universe (magnificently played here by Rutger Hauer). They believe they can fool the now blind star and gain access to a hidden fortune in his crumbling mansion, but a friendship develops between the girl and the old man. A sly psychological thriller with erotic overtones, it's also an intriguing story about moral dilemmas.
