A life full of abuse: in the family, on the road, and ultimately in Otto Muehl’s commune. Portrayed in two hours of uncut material that poses formal questions related to documentary film in the midst of an incomprehensible story: how is it possible to approach a scandal, how a human life? The protagonist’s and filmmaker’s mutually prepared staging becomes independent in an oscillation between protecting, inquiring, and allying. Voyeurism and search for truth.
