The audience follows the protagonist on his walks through the countryside north of Berlin. His face can only be seen once. Meanwhile, the countryside, the pictures, his movements reflect his inner life. He seems to be on a journey. He follows an inner impulse and carries a heavy burden until he comes to a point to think about his life.
