Bleiziffer hingegen verschlägt es nach einer gescheiterten Liebe nach Istrien, wo er ein Boot restaurieren will. Kordian hält Kontakt zu Bleiziffer, bis ihn eine unerwartete Nachricht aus Istrien erreicht und seine Pläne in Polen augenblicklich über den Haufen wirft.
Roland Scheerer knüpft ein feines Netz an Verbindungen: Die Lebenswege der beiden Freunde sind durch ihre Familienbeziehungen miteinander verflochten. 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.
