Criminologist Dr. Dan Philipp has devoted his career to treating sex offenders and sex workers. His professional life has involved an encounter with evil, insanity, and transgression. Dan contends that society’s attitude towards sex offenders is hypocritical and fearful of meeting the perversion that lurks inside us all.
Dan’s routine is interrupted when he is invited to his native city of Aachen, to a memorial ceremony for his childhood friend Gisela. The return to Germany reveals a dark secret from Dan’s past, compelling him to face formative events experienced as a child fugitive in the woods. His journey sheds new light on his professional choice and obsession with human evil.
