Psychological Drama

“…I live amok?” Do you even know what ‘amok’ is? Amok in the Indonesian language means a fit of rage that leads to murder…”

One stormy night, two men meet aboard a ship sailing to Europe. One is a doctor returning from faraway Indonesia, where he needed to work for his livelihood. During their encounter, we uncover the story behind the madness of this doctor who had lived in isolation and boredom until a beautiful, bold, noble Western woman entered his life, seeking his assistance. From that moment on, his life spiraled out of control. This powerful psychological drama, based on the novel by the famous Jewish Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, centers on the fatal madness of love.
