"The Hamburg Syndrome": As scientists discuss the merits of prolonging life at Hamburg's congress centre, a dangerous disease is spreading and threatens the city. Everybody who gets infected becomes mad and finally die...展开s - in an weird embryonic position. The authorities panic and react to the disease by declaring a useless state of emergency. Furthermore, the vaccination that is handed out in large amounts, does seem to rather stabilize the virus instead of destroying it. A small group of infected people manages to escape from quarantine and to flee to a small farm in the Bavarian hills to wait for the epidemic to end.
Last fictitious role of Fernando Arrabal as a crazy guy in an wheelchair. The electronic Score was composed by Jean-Michel Jarre.
