The Last Employee


"The Last Employee" tells the story of David (Christian Berkel), a lawyer who has taken a job after a long period of unemployment. Except he is having a crisis of conscience. He is supposed to liquidate a company and fire everyone. And he does – for the sake of his wife Irina (Jule Ronstedt) and son Simon. His scruples appear justified: a young woman (Bibiana Beglau) collapses after he lays her off. He drives her home, tries to comfort her – BIG MISTAKE! She becomes aggressive. That same night she calls and threatens him. From now on she appears every day in the empty office or terrorizes him on the telephone. She seems to be everywhere. When she appears in his private life he drives, enraged, to her house – only to find her corpse!
David′s life now spins out of control. He feels her ghost wants revenge on him and his family. He begins to fear the lifeless office. Every shadow, every sound, every door that opens increases his fear. David was once in psychiatric treatment, suffering from acute panic attacks. It’s no wonder his wife believes David’s ghostly visions to be a relapse. Is she right? Is he the victim of his own fears? Or is he really being haunted by a vengeful ghost?
