Synopsis

Martin Karow is Dj Ickarus, a hugely popular disc jockey and producer of electronic music. He spends nights at techno clubs all over the world and days going from airport to airport in the company of Mathilde, manager and girlfriend. They are in the midst of producing Ickarus’ new album when, after a performance, Martin ends up at a Berlin psychiatric hospital emergency room due to his drug abuse. He continues working on the record during his time at the hospital, but his personal situation begins to frustrate him. The record company does not seem all that interested in releasing his work and, after running away from the hospital, he goes on a weekend-long binge in the company of a fan. Martin’s self-destructive maelstrom seems endless, and he returns to the hospital, by his own choice this time. Recovery seems complicated, but finally there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel
