Here, where his parents Ralph (Martin Feifel) and Anke (Deborah Kaufmann) also live, Ben spent his holidays as a child.

Together with Marion, Ben succeeds in establishing contact with Timmi and even communicating with him via an MRI procedure. He begins to reconstruct the events of that time in order to bring Timmi back into consciousness through the confrontation with his trauma. But the deeper Ben goes into the past, the more his own world begins to shake ...
