Brief synopsis

Mike Kleinman (35), living a well-organized life, is suddenly faced with drastic change: one after another, all his life’s parts are simply vanishing. Job, money, girlfriend, apartment – even he himself seems to dissolve. In a race against time he has to understand what is happening and either stop the vanishing or give in.
