Das Heimweh der Feldforscher

A Film by Robert Gwisdek

Synopsis

Four field researchers want to go home. Unfortunately, one of them apparently lost his mind. Since the return is not possible as long as he remains in this state, they start a controversy about what to do with him. Where do they come back from and what was the object of their research, becomes a more and more important question.
