    As a mid-twenties Peter lives a routine urban life and organizes parties. Although he is charming, he acts selfishly and tries to make his environment dependent on himself. Chronic tinnitus triggers self-destructive impulses, in which it becomes more and more isolated, distanced from friends, and ends its relationship. He struggles to maintain his usual life and fails on physical and mental boundaries. Repression and insight are soon close to each other.
