Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, is forced to steal 13 paintings from world renowned museums and private collections...

... to prevent his suffering from terrible nightmares he has as a result of subliminal messaging he received as a child. Accompanied by his four patients, he and his band of thieves strike regularly and with great success: the Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage, MoMA…

The Collector quickly becomes the most wanted criminal in the world.
