A computer scientist who suffers from phantom sounds encapsulates himself in his room, cut off from the world, to find out more about his illness. Johannes Grenzfurthner stages the ensuing self-experiment as an escalating YouTube horror video and questions modern nerdiness and the insufferableness of existence. An endless case, a permanent noise, a lament. A film like the devil’s ladder into the prison of our era.
