Somewhere in town, a girl is packing knives in her backpack. She longs for an unknown world, being with an unknown guy, whom she only knows text messages.

Elsewhere, Pawlik longs for Rüzgar, whose eyes he cannot forget, and he decides to go to Ukraine to fight.

At a third location in town, a guy stands in the street with a rifle in his hand – in the middle of the night. The voices that used to be inside his head are getting louder and louder. But where do they come from? From the man with the backpack? The woman in the scarf? Or is it the news feeds of his smartphone that are making noise?

The three stories that run through VERSTEHEN SIE DEN DSCHIHADISMUS IN ACHT SCHRITTEN!, have one thing in common: The protagonists’ individual pursuit of stands and security turns into an escape into radicalized thought patterns with tragic consequences.
