I'd rather be a murderer

Mr Schulze has a problem: he can’t leave his flat. Apparently he is afraid of people who are nosy and will figure out where he has spent his last 10 years. Mr. Schulze was locked up in a psychiatric clinic. A sexual offender now at large and declared healthy searches uselessly his way back to society. Unsuccessful and dispirited he withdraws from public life. His psychologist tries to prevent him from giving up, but Mr Schulze is tired.
