After one year in the Congo and a highly explosive and controversial article about uranium exportation to Iraq, an investigative journalist returns home to Germany. There, he takes up his new post at the local magazine and begins to write a book about the Congo. Surprisingly, his research conducts him to his very surroundings, where strange things are happening: his new neighbors are behaving suspiciously, he receives mysterious messages and feels more and more certain that he is being watched.
When finally alarming information about his girlfriend, a french journalist, is revealed, his world is turned upside down. Everyone and everything could be a lie. And what about the mysterious woman who has just stepped into his life?
DAIMONION tells the story of a desperate and uncompromising search for the truth. But the deeper the protagonist digs, the more he seems to depart from this very truth. What if the one truth, the one explanation, doesn't exist?
In ancient Greece, the "Daimonion" is described as a protective spirit that is part of the ego and watches over the predestined fate or may even relieve people from their fate determination. Socrates experienced the Daimonion as an inner voice that kept him from doing something wrong. Socrates even placed this voice above his rational thinking and his reason. To hear the voice and correctly interpret it is up to man himself.
The Daimonion leads man through his life, determines his destiny, and fills him with higher passion, but sometimes with madness also. Often diseases such as epilepsy have been associated with the Daimonion.
"A daimonion is not elected for you, you choose your Daimonion yourself! (...) The chooser is to blame, God is innocent!"
