After his release from psychiatry, Martin ends up on the streets and meets a young orphan boy, Viktor. After finding each other, they escape the city and build a hut in the woods to establish their own home within nature. Their daily struggle for survival creates a strong bond between the two and gives their life a new meaning. But just as they seem to have found a kind of happiness, the machine strikes back: the hut is destroyed and Martin imprisoned. His psychiatrist tells him that Viktor is just a product of his mind, his inner child. Martin refuses to believe that and starts to fight. He breaks free from prison and takes the gun from a policeman. His goal is clear: he must find Viktor and prove that the boy exists.
