Shock Waves A Diary of My Mind

Ursula Meier



A few minutes before shooting his father and his mother in cold blood, Benjamin Feller, an 18-year-old young man, apparently uneventful, sends his personal diary by mail to his literature teacher in which he confesses and explains his double murder. The choice to associate this woman with his act and to unwillingly take her in his fall, follows several months of an educational relationship that encouraged the students to write a personal diary. The teacher find herself interrogated by the law, and soon confronted with her own doubts. What if her taste for a literature, haunted by the torments of the human soul, made her blind before the distress of her pupil and what was hidden behind the feverish prose he had made her read long before his crime?
