Woyzeck, a simple soldier, serves a captain as a barber. He is unable to support his lover Marie and their child on his wages, so he also works as a medical test subject.

The consequences of the experiments weaken him so much that he loses himself more and more in a world of delusions. And so Woyzeck - despite his upright endeavours to be a good person - ends up staggering towards the abyss in a society that gives him no support in life. Director Ersan Mondtag moves Woyzeck to a small camp in the forest. In seclusion, a small community celebrates its toxic masculinity in nature. Woyzeck becomes the victim of dull, patriarchal patterns.
