Star business lawyer Urs Blank, forty-five years old, specialist for merger negotiations, has his feelings under control. He has learned not to leave himself wide open, but to make use of the openness of others. But then his life runs off the rails. A trip with hallucinogenic mushrooms leads to a dangerous change of personality, from which no-one succeeds in saving him. Blank flees into the forest. Until he finally comes to understand: there is only one way to free himself from this nightmare.
