Synopsis

Paul Schreber is a man who wants to go home - but can’t. He is a man crippled by an illness he doesn’t understand - and sometimes doesn’t even know he has. He's no condition to face the worst - but the worst keeps on happening to him. His family is disintegrating, past traumas are coming back to haunt him - and so are those troubling, seemingly laid-to-rest fears of persecution...
