    • Synopsis
    • The aim of the film is not to understand the reason of this crime. His act will remain inexplicable the same as it is for its murderer.
      This is what one calls the unconditional crime.

      The main question of the movie is: Is there a possible way back to the Right Mind after one causes an irreparable harm? If it is possible, what is this way back? If not where all this goes?

      The idea is to follow the roaming of a person who caused an irreparable harm: his physical roaming through the forests and fields and his psychological roaming through his different states of annihilation, terror, madness and consciousness – the twists and turns of the way back to the Right Mind.

      The goal is to observe with an almost medical attention the psychological, intellectual and emotional processes which starts to function when a person realizes the horror of the irremediable character of his crime.
      It is to question if a person is able to define himself by such a monstrous act, to question personal equation – I killed so I am a murderer.
