Germany, in the autumn of 2015. In a country that is seen by many as free, open, and diverse, fear runs rampant. Fear of strangers, fear of extinction, of being overwhelmed; fear of being lied to by politicians and the media. Fear of being terrorized by minorities who demand equal rights, fear of losing one’s own privileges. Falk Richter focuses on the monsters that give birth to these fears, and he takes us on a journey through abandoned and thriving, real and virtual German landscapes, where we meet a Christian fundamentalist hate preacher, anxious citizens, and anxious parents, and join the conspiratorial alliance between the political right, the church and the aristocracy for the re-Christianization of the West.
