Born in a refugee camp in the aftermath of World War Two, a boy grows up in the far-flung Bavarian village of Hausen. His parents come from sharply contrasting backgrounds. The mother is from a wealthy Berlin family and finds herself unable to adapt to rural life. The father is a loquacious good-for-nothing, whose Nazi past is shrouded behind a veil of diplomatic silence. It is only gradually, sifting fact from fiction, that the boy discovers what his father actually did. He has only one person he can confide in – the enigmatic farm-hand Veit. No one in the village really knows him, but he possesses something unique: a fabulous story. Because in the past he was in America – or so he claims.
