Karl has been a prisoner of war in Siberia since 1914, fighting hunger and cold. He longs for home and wants nothing more than to return to his beloved Fanny in Vienna, almost ten thousand kilometres away. In May 1918, the time finally comes: Karl and his brother Viktor flee together to the west.
Beatrix Kramlovsky tells the story of forgotten POWs of the Great War – artists, locksmiths and dreamers who were only kept alive by love. And of how a merciless landscape can take everything from people except their humanity.
