»Trees and bushes stand out like shadows in the silver light.« A man creeps through the moonlit night and approaches the Elbe. The river is at low water in the summer of 1984. There is a chance to ford the border river. Not far from him stands another man with binoculars and a pistol - a GDR border reconnaissance officer. »... the fugitive keeps still like a mouse and doesn't move.« Then the story takes a dramatic course. Two destinies intertwine, never to get away from each other again. An exciting novel with autobiographical features set against the background of German division.
