Thirty years ago, Switzerland was shocked by a scandal that today seems almost forgotten: over 900'000 people were monitored for their political convictions.

He soon succumbs to the charm of the chaotic life of an artist. He falls in love with the actress Odile Lehmann, whom he is supposed to monitor. More and more he begins to doubt his mission.Thirty years ago, Switzerland was shocked by a scandal that today seems almost forgotten: over 900'000 people were monitored for their political convictions.
