Moody music playing as on-screen text appears on screen:
The Windmill and the Teenage Nazi: A Knife in the Back.
The scene opens in a long, narrow hallway cast in extreme shadow. Paintings line the wall. Harsh light falls on the figure of a woman slowly walking down the hall with a flashlight. She then stops to exam an empty space on the wall where a painting should clearly be hanging.
A voice-over by Joe begins:
“So there was a painting missing - that’s how it all started."
The film cuts to Joe who is in a storage room searching through a long row of photographs. Joe is wearing suspenders and crisp white shirt. His hair is slicked back and he is looking through a stack of pictures on the floor. He selects one and places it on a trunk.
Voice over continues:
A gap in the wall that needed filling, and it was going to be my job to do the filling. The Boss had said, “Find me a painting, make sure it's got a story to tell, and have it ready within 24 hours, we have a big weekend coming up.” Then she’d said, ‘And no junk, understand Joe?'
As Joe continues, we see flashbacks to a series of shots of him polishing a glass case, sweeping the hallway and mopping the floor. We also see him greeting visitors to the museum and he appears visibly bored!
