Her husband, also a scientist, said goodbye abroad, and her adopted son Florian disappeared when he came of age. Now guests enter her life instead, a meeting place for the survivors somehow, as well as a lover who travels again and again to kill wolves for exampleehlen, the big, brilliant dog Pollux. Meanwhile, in the cellar, elegantly dressed mice reenact the history of mankind…
