The pathologic also seems to dominate the surrounding world. His mother, by whom he feels neglected, lives a promiscuous life, among her most recent relationships being the one with Manfred, her gynecologist, who is married to Anna. After their son's death, Anna begins to change more and more and Manfred takes refuge in his own hobby: biking. Thus, their daughter who is still at puberty, is left on her own, neglected. A play of painful intensity about the difficult quests of nowadays people to escape alienation, loneliness and alteration of communication.
