Rie is visiting the Copenhagen Metro construction to portray the European cooperation when an accident occurs. She is blocked in a pressure chamber alongside Croatian Ivo and Bharan from Eritrea. Despite radically different world-views, they must put their lives and bodies in each other’s hands to survive. „Cutterhead” unfolds in the visually stunning microcosm of the Copenhagen Metro construction. Movie relies on the well-known framework of the disaster film to tell the human and physical story about how people interact and react when they are under pressure. „Cutterhead” is full of allegories, references on the issues of capitalism and the labour migration, which is a bodily, claustrophobic experience, that goes far beyond an ordinary screening.
