It is winter. It is night-time. It is snowing. The publisher is still sitting at his desk. He has just entrusted a promising new manuscript from his bestselling author to the printers. Suddenly, an acquaintance, Petra Vinter, turns up in his office, claiming his author has stolen her story. It recollects a highly personal experience with far-reaching political repercussions during her time as a UN delegate in Africa. The story was never intended for publication. The publisher is torn. He hopes the lecture on literature and morality he is currently composing will help clear his mind. As he writes, he sees his life roll by before him: his marriage to his boss's daughter, an influential politician; their mutual infidelities; his temptation to leave it all behind and go off with his mistress; his decision to hang onto his failed marriage. It's up to you, Petra Vintner seems to be saying, as she calls, "Come, follow me. You have to change your life."
