Milan Berg is standing at a crosswalk when a car stops next to him. In the back seat, a completely frightened girl. She desperately presses a note against the window.
A cry for help?
Milan can’t read it – he’s illiterate! One of over two million in Germany. But he feels: The girl is in mortal danger! When he starts searching for her, a nightmarish odyssey begins for him, at the end of which there is a cruel realization: Sometimes the truth is too horrible to live with – and ignorance is the greatest gift on earth!
