Forst is a wealthy, well-organized person, seemingly a man on top of the world, a corporate vice-president. His life takes an abrupt turn when he quits his job, burning bridges as he leaves, ensuring there is no going back.  Four years later, Forst is a hermit living in a forest, unshaven, dirty, and ragged.  He lives in a shelter he’d dug out, hunting for food, his only companion a three-legged dog.  His life takes another turn when a thirteen-year-old girl turns up at his door.  Forst’s recluse life is forced to take yet another turn.
