Private Project


While monitoring video chat conversations for the Department of Homeland Security, Martin Takagi comes across the intimate interactions of David and Laura Cole. David has moved to Los Angeles from London one month ahead of Laura and uses video chat to maintain their relationship. The consummate voyeur, Takagi is glued to their conversations…at first to watch their “sexy-time”…and later to get to the bottom of what becomes evident: The apartment David is in, is haunted.
