Georg (Muhe), his wife, Anna (Lothar), and young son, Georgie (Clapczynski) are vacationing at their lakeside cottage when their peace is invaded by psycho Paul (Frisch) and his sniveling partner Frank (Giering). The family is tied up and forced to play humiliating games with a couple of amoral killers. Most of the physical violence occurs off-screen but the psychological torture is relentless. German with subtitles.
