After his release from psychiatry, Martin is spit out by society: branded as mentally ill, he ends up on the streets. The young Ukrainian boy Viktor counts as a nuisance to everyone and is set to go to an orphanage after the death of his mother. After finding each other, however, they escape the city and build a hut in the woods to establish their own home within nature. Their daily struggle for survival creates a strong bond between the two and gives their life a new meaning. Martin gets to know young Lena and encourages her to abandon her non-free life as well. But just as they seem to have found a kind of happiness, the machine strikes back: the hut is destroyed and Martin imprisoned. His Psychiatrist tells him that Viktor is a just a product of his mind, his inner child. Martin refuses to believe that and starts to fight. He breaks free from prison and takes the gun from a policeman. His goal is clear: he must find Viktor and prove that the boy exists. That’s the only way to make his dream come true: escape to Portugal together with Lena, and build a new hut in the woods there.
