Auf Deutsch - in German
Peer Gynt is an exceptionally talented dancer, womanizer and pilot. He knows how to handle a machine gun. However, the button-molder wants to melt his soul just like a misshaped lead figure. He can only escape this fate if he can prove that he was himself throughout his life. Peer has nine children, but he can’t be with them because a wall has been built between them. Peer Gynt has dementia. What is the ‘self’ exactly? And who exactly decides whose reality is valid?
