Die persönlichen Entwicklungen werden vor den Hintergrund geschichtlicher Ereignisse wie des Jugoslawienkrieges, des polnischen Alltags nach der Wende oder der Studentenstreiks an bayerischen Universitäten in den 90er Jahren gestellt. In leichtem Erzählton, bei dem sich absurde Szenen und tiefsinnige Überlegungen abwechseln, führt der Autor seine beiden Protagonisten an verschiedene europäische Schauplätze. Die Fäden werden mehr und mehr zusammengezogen und münden schließlich in ein unerwartetes Ende.
