In his directorial debut, Thomas Schamoni tells a complexly constructed story, which remains enigmatic, about a "world domination formula".
Poet Tom-X meets the tramp and former scientist Belotti, who developed the formula with four colleagues. According to Belotti, it was encoded in a poem, but he only knows a single verse of it. When Belotti dies a short time later, Tom-X sets out to find the four other scientists. But he's not the only one: numerous agents seem to be chasing the secret of the formula. Whether these are just figments of Tom-X's poetic imagination, however, remains uncertain.
