Sign of the Times

This is the story of a young man from Zurich, who sets out to turn the social system upside down and to rewrite history. He is a highly intelligent mastermind, a person who thinks outside the box, not everybody’s darling, but he conquers not only the country but also many hearts with his unique ideas. He is an intellectual, speaking the simple people’s language, a genius, an idealist and a rebel. He shakes the pillars of society and democracy. He is a nightmare to many a gentleman on the carpet floors in Zwingli-Zurich. He stands up for a piece of freedom, hitting the very core of a dusty system. This is the honest story of a rebel who 40 years later becomes victim of a rebellion himself.
