Helene Brindel's childless marriage shows no signs of harmony, and the somber woman has also lost her faith in God. "Where are You?" she asks from behind a veil of melancholy that separates her from the real world of relative luxury in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Liberation from the emotional trap of gloomy thoughts and insomnia appears one day in the person of charismatic psychologist Eduard Gluck, a self-assured and charming speaker for "new cybernetics," which claims the ability to control reality with the mind and the possibility of "reprogramming oneself." But a surprising secret hides behind his elegantly formulated guidelines for a lifestyle, whose self-centeredness Gluck tries to conceal with mild irony.
