Brief synopsis

Der Tod seines Sohnes hat Frieder aus der Bahn geworfen und ihn in ein ein- sames Dasein getrieben, das er nur mit Hilfe starrer Routinen und etlicher Fla- schen Wein mühsam aufrecht erhält. Sein letzter Freund ist ein Fisch im Lago Maggiore, und als dieser eines Tages verschwindet, beginnt für Frieder eine Reise, auf der er Briefe an seinen Sohn schreibt, ein Wunder erfährt und end- lich seinen Frieden findet.
