Stefan and Claudia plan a trip to the coast in a camper as a last attempt to save their troubled relationship. Along the way, they pick-up a hitchhiker, Uli, who also happens to be a professional puppeteer. Uli tries to "entertain" them with his puppet, but something just doesn't seem right. The situation becomes more serious as the puppet seems to develop a life of its own. As Stefan thinks he might recognize Uli from somewhere, a mysterious game begins which becomes more and more dangerous for Stefan and Claudia.
