The rituals of everyday uniformity are only interrupted when the wind turbine engineer Julius Schmitke (played by the indestructible Peter Kurth) is forced to travel to the Czech hinterland for maintenance work. He is accompanied by his talkative co-worker Thomas, who suddenly disappears without a trace after their first night together in a rural bar. What if the mysterious Bearman came and got him? Or was he really seduced by the local wood sprite? Over the course of his search, the grumpy loner Schmitke slowly but surely becomes part of the community himself. Lovingly overplayed and laconically Kafkaesque, our hero loses his bearings in a sea of fog, until he is finally indeed able to see the big picture.
