In this 90-minute film by director, writer, and film-critic Eckhardt Schmidt, the hero-worship that Simone (Desiree Nosbusch) has for a pop singer is built to a crescendo until she passes out when she finally sees him up-close in a crowd of fans pushing him for autographs. After she regains consciousness, she discovers that she is in the singer's dressing room and is shocked as he lets her know that he does not love her. In an instant, she is caught "in a trance" and feels a murderous urge that is bigger than the both of them.
