Jack is a serial killer whom we follow during 12 years, exploring the murders that make him be who he is. Jack understands every murder as an artwork, and is seeking for his masterpiece. In order to get it, he'll have to take stronger risks every time, and little by little the police will get close and close to him. Through Jack's conversations with the unknown Verge, we will get to know his fears, his desires and darkest thoughts, and we will understand why the intelligent Jack is the way he is. The always controverted director Lars Von Trier presents The House That Jack Built, a story that "celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless", as described by the director himself. The film unites the darkness in its premise with a philosophical and almost humorous presentation.
