When documentary maker and philosopher Prosper de Roos helps his demented father tidy up, he accidentally finds an old cassette tape from 1977 with his own name on it. The tape features his father’s voice asking an astrologer for help. Dad does not know what to do with his 11-year-old son. Little Prosper does not obey, is careless and still wets his bed. The astrologer is not surprised; the child has a catastrophic constellation. If his father does not raise him strictly, the child could easily become a terrorist. It has something to do with karma.
