The filmmakers first meet Stefan in 2015, in the therapy ward of Brandenburg Prison in Germany. Together, they are part of the therapy group “Masculinity and Identity“. Their first impression of a polite, shy man is quickly called into question by one of the warders – he tells them Stefan is an ice-cold woman-killer. Stefan S. does not want to be recognizable in the film. The filmmakers move scenes they have shot into a theater space. The part of the protagonist is taken by a puppet, manipulated by two female puppeteers.
The film moves between forms, at the limits of representation. Truth and falsehood blend in a cascade of presumption.
