Before the story begins, Mark faces a complete loss of his previous identity. He wants to break out of his old, regular life. The driving force behind is the feeling of living and acting more for others and not for oneself. So he begins to reflect critically on his life and realizes that he deeply condemns his place in society. From now on he wants to decide for himself and establish his own definition for a happy life. His new goal is complete freedom. So he forges a plan that will provide him with the necessary capital. In doing so he does not shy away from taking illegal paths. Unnoticed, however, Mark loses more and more control over himself and gets lost in the ideals he has set for himself.
