Lennart Ruff - Nocebo

37:51, 2014, Fiction
Christian Lukas, 22, is on the run. He took part in a drug study and together with his girlfriend Anna discovered the death of a fellow participant. However instead of investigating, the doctors co- vered up the incident. When Anna also starts showing signs of the deadly side ef- fects Christian breaks out of the test centre to get help. But neither police nor doctors believe his story since Christian suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Only his sister Ali- ce stands by him despite her also having serious doubts - until suddenly unknown pursuers show up. But what is the real story behind Christian’s escape? Does the girl in danger really exist at all? Where is the line between psychosis and reality? Nocebo - a perception thriller.
