Sobota calls himself a man without any sense of morals or guilt. Before he shocked the media with his bestseller "The Minus Man" in the eighties, he was a pimp and violent. A young journalist, played by Lily Gropper, goes on a search for Sobota, the man. Their encounters are the documented meetings of two "real" people. The balance of power and the chemistry between them fluctuates constantly. The truth becomes a commodity and an instrument of power. They are protagonist and antogonist, beauty and the beast, cat and mouse, man and woman.

Duration: 29 Min.
