It's a bitter satire upon the problem of the uncontrollable freedom. In a town of Switzerland a murderer who committed a crime without any reason is about to go on a trial. His only excuse is that the boredom, the daily routine led him to this crime. The murderer might have wanted to escape this routine. The Public Prosecutor who is going to charge him with the crime seems also a man tired of his own life. Even though he feels sympathy for the murderer, and seems to understand him, however he has no authority to acquit him. The night that he stays alone in his office, the Prosecutor dreams his fleeing and decides to free the murderer and live an absolutely independent life. The next day comes and the reality of this dream beginsthe play places this question:'Is the man capable of the ultimate freedom or is it just a senseless dream?'.
