Maxim Gorki Theater

Chaos in the megalopolis of Chicago: Malaysian lumber dealer Shlink enters a public library and wants to buy the opinion of its clerk, George Garga. His refusal starts a battle without rules, without morality, without motive, in which both opponents put everything on the line. Garga loses his workplace because of Shlink, who then forces Garga’s girlfriend and sister into prostitution and sends him to jail. In doing so, he not only ruins Garga’s family financially, but also destroys its cohesion. Garga denounces Shlink for the rape of his sister and begins a campaign to lynch him. It is a battle of life and death, a fight in the jungle in which people only seem to achieve closeness through struggle.
