In another 1983 cinematic projection into the future like Pankow 95, director Richard Blank portrays a cold and oppressive German world where a woman is picked up and put into an asylum. The practice in the asylum is to electrocute prisoners in a large restaurant-type setting -- and since the woman has no desire to be publicly zapped into oblivion, she takes up with a guard who has fallen in love with her and the two escape. While away, they travel to various places, and the woman continues to look for her brother -- whom she finds but then sees him apparently commit suicide. All of this, and the rest of the film, move forward by inches at a time, creating a dull effect that dims the story, a story that leaves more than one question mark as to its meaning or purpose.
