George (Ulrich Mühe), and his wife Anna (Susanne Lothar), and their son Georgie (Stefan Clapczynski) have just arrived at their vacation home for a week of relation and sailing with their neighbors. While unpacking and settling in, they are visited by a young man Peter (Frank Giering) asking to borrow eggs for their friends and neighbors next door. But as Peter starts to leave he drops the eggs and asks for more. Anna gives him another four which he drops and always drops her cell phone into the kitchen sink water. When Peter's brother Paul (Michael Pitt) shows up asking why there is a problem, Anna's suspicions grow as to the boy's intentions. When husband George becomes involved it becomes a cat and mouse game of survival.
