Synopsis: In a rural German farming community, a mentally retarded man in his twenties named Ben is taken care of by his parents. Ben loves sharp objects, like knives, ice cream, hunting small animals, burying things outside his house, and running out into the fields at night. After a young blonde Russian trapeze artist performs at a small circus in town and kisses him, Ben changes and he seems to discover his sexuality more and more. The young girl goes missing, and not long after so does another young blonde girl. Some of the townspeople, and even Ben's own father, suspect that Ben may have had something to do with the disappearances.
