Marc grows up in a semi-detached housing estate. He wants to break out, become an actor, conquer the world. The world is already at the feet of his friend, the industrialist's son Roy - actually Robert. The two dream and hope, grow closer to each other, but also into a glamorous world that meets at the "Roxy" disco. They celebrate existence. But the lines between friendship and rivalry are sometimes thin. They meet the stunning Carolin, who changes everything.

Gripping and at the same time with great lightness, Johann von Bülow tells in this strong novel inspired by life about fate and chance, about the paths one takes, about the luxurious misfortune of wealth and the force of real decisions - in short: about what really counts.

An event by Literatur LIVE in cooperation with Rowohlt Berlin Verlag and Thalia Buchhandlung.
