OFF TARGET is the story of a peculiar day in a very quite middle-class neighborhood suddenly upset one morning by an unusual event: a black taxi driver, apparently well-integrated and the fiancé of the pharmacist’s daughter, is shot at by an alleged sniper. Who fired the gun and why is the question everybody will be asking for the following 24 hours. Meanwhile a chain of suspicions, misinterpretations and irrational reactions escalate into totally unexpected situations that unearth the normally hidden aspects of all neighbors.
