Hermann, a Russian emigre owner of a failing candy factory, is fed up with his plump wife and has developed a habit of dissociating himself from his body to the point that he can watch himself make love. Set during the 1930's and confronted with the Nazi rise to power, Hermann ultimately works out a lucrative murder-suicide.
