THE FREE WILL

by Matthias Glasner

synopsis

Theo, a rapist, is released after nine years in a psychiatric hospital's prison ward. His fear of women and the unfulfilled desire this generates turns normal life into a kind of martyrdom. At the age of 27, Nettie finally manages to cut herself free from her father and a lifetime of mental abuse at his hands. Theo and Nettie meet.
