The letter with which Otto invited his old friend Paul to come and visit him at his secluded cabin in the middle of the forest in 1929 bears signs of arrogance. The young composer curses Hindemith’s “functional music” and Kurt Weill’s “negro music”. Since Otto’s new symphony is awaited in America, he wants to show it to his former classmate at all costs. When Paul, his wife Anna and their mutual friend Willi arrive at the cabin after a long march through the woods, Otto is nowhere to be found. They are welcomed at the cabin by a dog tied with a leash. Disorder and chaos prevail. Paul reassures his irritated companions: Otto will reappear; he has often gone missing for days, binging on pubs and bordellos, only to return with a masterpiece in hand. Anna reacts strangely and with dissatisfaction.
