When Janus (21) is released from a secure psychiatric hospital, he has only one thing in mind - to find a girl named Amina. She means everything to him, and her letters have saved him from committing suicide while confined in the institution. Janus fears that Amina has come to grief, and embarks on a detective style journey through the streets of the big city to find her. His journey takes him into a paranoid and violent world, and it nearly costs him his life. He becomes increasingly convinced that Amina is living in a violent marriage, from which he must save her. He becomes so obsessed by the notion of Amina's tragic fate, that only when it is too late does he realise that the person who needs saving is himself.
