Jonas Widmer is one of the leading long-distance runners in Switzerland and his great ambition is to run the marathon in the Olympics. Despite his difficult childhood he appears to have found his way: besides running, he works as a chef, is always ready and willing to support his friends and acquaintances, and he and his girlfriend Simone are soon moving into their first flat together. But then Jonas unsuccessfully defends his title during his home race and memories of his deceased brother Philip are finally catching up with him. Unable to put his emotional suffering into words, Jonas develops a tragic double life in his growing desperation.
