Plot

Christian Lukas (Vincent Redetzki) is on the run. He took part in a drug study and together with his girlfriend Anna (Odine Johne) discovered the death of a fellow participant. The doctors covered up the incident. When Anna starts showing the deadly side effects, Christian breaks out of the test centre to get help. Neither police nor doctors believe his story since, Christian suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Only his sister Alice (Picco von Groote) stands by him despite her also having serious doubts - until suddenly unknown pursuers show up. What is the real story behind Christian‘s escape? Does the girl in danger exist? Where is the line between psychosis and reality?
