Verbatim Box Synopsis
Three youths discover an apartment in a suburb of the inner-city and decide to rob it.  They are not professional criminals, are badly organised and the noise alerts a watchful neighbor who calls the police. 

In the skirmish that follows one of the robbers is shot by the police...

A bystander is fascinated by the sight of the dead youth and remains for hours staring at the corpse.  A man who has never been touched by violence before - he buys a revolver and little by little his life starts to change - he reacts as if he were possessed as the gun slowly takes over his life...

A movie filled with high suspense as this once respected citizen turns to violence.
