Marriage fraudster and con artist Hauke Born sits in a desolate room. On the ankle: an ankle bracelet. After six years in prison, he is supposed to reintegrate into society. At his side: the therapist Tania, who has accompanied Born on his way back to freedom for years.
Well on the way to everyday life in freedom, one day Sonja Schwarz, who he doesn't know, registers for a visit. She claims to be his daughter. Hauke is surprised and skeptical, but the two meet and get closer. Does Hauke need his daughter? Is Sonja looking for a father? Or maybe they are only interested in the seven million he swindled and no one knows where they went?
In any case, Hauke claims to have long since gotten rid of the dirty money: The woman from whom he swindled it is a wealthy industrial heiress. And their family became rich in the 1940s through the work of Polish and Jewish forced laborers.
In his piece, Lukas Bärfuss dedicates himself to the art of seduction. Who wants to be seduced? Who can be seduced? Do political, amorous, financial or moral motives play a role? Or are terrible fates just used so that they soon degenerate into anecdotes when the contemporary witnesses can no longer speak for themselves?
