Corporate lawyer Urs Blank is the undisputed star of his profession. He has money and the perfect wife. But the suicide of a business colleague throws him off track and leads to an attraction with Lucille and her alternative lifestyle. Seduced into experimenting with hallucinogenic mushrooms, his dark side emerges, as with merciless power, long suppressed aggressions burst out and go wild. The once civilized lawyer turns into an instinct-driven individual and erratic murderer. Deeply unsettled by the change, he flees to the woods in search of an antidote, but the police and his vindictive business partner are already on his tracks.
