The plot

Frederick is a shy man with a passion for entomology: his only interest is to capture and collect butterflies. For some time he noticed Miranda, a young and charming art student, a girl as vital and luminous as he is anonymous and shady. After a fortuitous lottery win that makes him very rich, he decides to buy an old isolated house, to readjust the basement to an apartment and to kidnap the girl; he is convinced that by being alone with him she will learn to know him and therefore to love him.

Frederick does not perceive himself as a criminal: he acts - for love and decides to segregate Miranda since he has no other means to approach her; he is a man who seems to have no interests outside of his collection; isolated and in a sort of captivity he is "simply" unable to relate to others. Miranda, on the contrary, is a multifaceted character, capable of adopting the most diverse strategies to save her life.
