Forst has a jagged personality; he doesn't care whether or not he is liked by others – he simply wants to live life to the fullest. Living life in the fast lane, his car is more important to him than his friends. Until one day he slams on the brakes. Practically overnight, Forst discards his old life. He throws away his job, his flat and his earthly belongings to become a hermit in the woods, living under the most primitive of conditions. Only a three-legged dog keeps him company. But the forest is not a wasteland; it is teeming with life. It offers beauty and barbarity and most of all, visitors. Visitors like Nata, the prostitute, or Jadzia, the girl, who follows him around and little by little reveals a well-kept secret from Forst’s past.
