Synopsis
September 11th, 1806, the poet Friedrich Hölderlin is forcibly abducted from his then home in Homburg and brought to a mental hospital in Tübingen. There he is treated according to the traumatising methods of the time, then declared incurable. His remaing 36 years of life he spends isolated in a room in Tübingen. Taking the questionable forced abduction as a starting point the film recounts the uncompromising life path of this world-famous poet and traces his political radicalisation against the background of the French Revolution. A story about extremism, yearning and identity.
