This Austrian film is based on the last years of Wilhelm Reich’s life in the US. Wilhelm Reich – psychiatrist and experimental scientist – finds himself on trial, charged with deception. His dream of liberating human individuality makes him a dangerous opponent of an American system that is striving after 1945 for global hegemony. Was it madness to believe in man’s liberty or was Reich simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? Ten years after his mysterious death, his writings, once burnt by the US FDA, become an important source of inspiration for a ‘68 generation in revolt.
