Jolly life in Mühlheim, Ruhr. The parents have fumbled out their old Nazi uniforms. It adds even more fun to the polonaise. Mama gives the starting signal for an extraordinary military parade. Will her son Joe be able to resist the brutal fight of the systems? Will Joe eat the raw human brain? Joe seems lost. His way leads into an abandoned shaft of the Rosendelle mine, where there is a test laboratory. The
situation is picking up speed.
