After years of being hounded by the McCarthy regime, psychiatrist and researcher Wilhelm Reich, in search of an original energy of life, is on trial for fraud. His dream of unleashing the individual in man makes him a dangerous opponent of an American system that, after 1945, seeks world domination by any means necessary. Was it madness to believe in human freedom, or was Reich merely in the wrong place at the wrong time and consequently, as a close observer of far-reaching socio-political contexts, a danger to rigid power structures? 10 years after his mysterious death, his burned writings become important companions of a revolting 68er generation.
