In the midst of democracy fatigue, a new type of politician is being cast: versatile according to the potential for excitement and the (false) news situation, who no longer has to convince voters, but whose performance has to please his audience, his followers: One for all, who want to be part of the community, and all together give everything for the one. But what happens when the secret string-pullers themselves finally lose control and “Operation Mindfuck” becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy?
A wild ride through filter bubbles, conspiracy theories and unbelievable historical events – based on a true story, but not really. A real mindfuck.
