Markus, a 29-year-old good-looking, likable and respected architect, is a paedophile. Bodies of little boys excite him. He suffers tremendously because of his inclination. He feels tortured by his desires and he is disgusted by himself. Nevertheless, the arousal is there. And there is nothing he can do about it. He struggles the most when the opportunity to become sexual with a boy is close enough to reach.That is when he senses that he will not be able to keep his desire under control for much longer. He is getting more and more isolated. Markus struggles to resist the ever-rising calls in his head to finally “do more” with a boy.
