Robert Haller (Marco Michel) is a celebrated although very controversial author. He walks out of a TV talkshow by literary critic Sascha Bachmann (Nikolaus Schmid) and retreats to his holiday cottage near a lake in the Swiss alps. There, the borderlines between reality and fiction slowly begin to fade. Haller is on the verge of losing his mind.
