The thriller Clean Hands is based on a Dutch crime novel by René Appel. For a long time Sylvia didn’t want to see her the flourishing drug business of her husband Eddie. When the police starts to show up more and more at their house, she realises how deeply involved he actually is. To protect her two children, Sylvia tries to run away from the criminal world. However, this is far from easy, especially because Eddie will do everything to keep the "family" together. 

Planet X Title Design designed the title sequence for Clean Hands. The background is still blurry. The atmosphere is muggy, just like the music. Large, not that subtle letters appear. The shapes of the letters reflect the characters of the film. The letters seem to vibrate in the hot air, such as the air can vibrate above asphalt in the desert. In the end, the main title is shown full frame.
