1956: The emigrant Austrian psychiatrist and fringe scientific researcher Wilhelm Reich stands accused of fraud by a US-court and is sentenced to prison. Antonin Svoboda focuses on the years of Reich’s research that precede the trial: his search for the life force Orgon, the development of the cloud- buster technology as well as his struggle against the hostility of his colleagues and the political elite. This is a star-studded drama, stunningly photographed by Martin Gschlacht.
