Against the background of right-wing Austrian violence, the family drama tells the story of a father, who is faced by an incredible suspicion: Can it be that his own son has become a right-wing terrorist unnoticedly? Has he committed politically motivated crimes? How should he deal with this suspicion as a person and a father? He starts questioning his own behaviour. Is there anything in the blind spot of his perception that he should have seen and should have prevented?
