Synopsis / Plot
This expressionistic non-narrative film is about the psychological and emotional trials of a man just released from prison after 16 years. Johannes (Peter Thiel) killed his wife in a fit of misguided passion many years ago, and is now middle-aged and trying to adjust to life on the outside. Every sound he hears in his small apartment reminds him of the sounds of his years in prison: doors opening and slamming shut, footsteps down the hall. He struggles to communicate his feelings about his crime to his mother and daughter, but never quite manages a breakthrough. Others seem more understanding, and there is some hope that after a while, Johannes will no longer feel quite so alienated.
