The trappings of a crime drama provide the framework for this blunt look at carnal sexuality and savage violence. Detective's assistant Pharaon De Winter, who lives with his mother and is silently in love with his neighbor Domino half-heartedly investigates the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl; meanwhile, he tags along with Domino and her thuggish boyfriend, who revels in brazenly flaunting the law in front of an impotent Pharaon. Through this unlikely protagonist the film probes the thin line between civilization and animal instinct.
