Lukas, a shy 21-year-old, moves to Cologne to join his big sister, Kati, and her boyfriend, Jochen in a haphazard bohemian household. At first Lukas enjoys city life, with its late-night parties and pub crawls, its early morning drug hits and hallucinogenic picnics. But he soon starts feeling strange and behaving oddly. When he misreads a movie schedule and shows up at the theater on the wrong night, he flies into a paranoid rage. Later, after taking psilocybin mushrooms with Kati and Jochen, Lukas begins to hear voices and to believe he can read his sister's hostile thoughts. Even after the drug wears off, the voices persist, mocking and humiliating him and goading him toward some dreadful, unspecified action. It takes a while for his housemates to figure out what is happening to him, and his sister is reluctant to accept the eventual heartbreaking diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia.
