Inhalt

Stefan is someone who likes to enjoy all the pleasures in life;he is curious, playful and always a little ironic. If at all possible, he avoids any effort and strain, he drinks a lot, loves smoking and occasionally works at a trendy club. One evening, Stefan spots a stranger sitting at the bar, a man who is carefully checking him out. Martin appears quiet and cool and he is wearing a wedding band. Stefan
smiles. He assumes that a married man is looking for a little variety
and invites Martin back to his place. However, the supposed adventure
comes to an abrupt end when Martin takes a letter out of his jacket
pocket, a letter written by Martin′s mother shortly before she passed
away. The letter is addressed to Stefan, her second son, who she gave
up for adoption after giving birth to him. Stefan and Martin are
brothers, and together they travel to the Italian town Cattolica in
search of their pasts and the place where the story all began...
