Synopsis How does a normal person become a murderer? What is the path that leads from frustration, from the inability to accept defeat, to sociopathy? Hannes Baumgartner seems to seek in his debut feature the answer to those questions that define, in their composition, some of the evils of our society. Using a merciless camera, the German debut director portrays in the foreground the flight (textual) to nowhere of a perfect example of patriarchal society: an excess of testosterone, a deficit of empathy and an obsession with eliminating the obstacles that stand between his ego and reality. Presented internationally in the New Directors Section of the 2018 San Sebastian Film Festival.
