The 30-year-old tourism manager Gegor Nadolny is with his ten-year-old daughter on the return journey of Italy. Although Anna has a fever, he does not have in a great hurry to come home to Hamburg because he fears what expects him there professionally and privately. He wants only after peacocks, a village in which he has spent twenty years ago a summer with his Stiefgroßeltern. The recollection of the village and his people always gave him a feeling of native country in which he longs to return. He tells ill Anna about that summer. The curious imagination of the boy at that time and the desperate longing of the man today mix dream and reality.
2. Sonne, Mond und Sterne
Tourism manager Gregor Nodolny and his ten-year-old daughter Anna come to the village about which he has told her. But while Anna produces quite directly relations, Gregor must overcome his disappointment about the reality over and over again. He meets them almost everybody again: the solitarily become uncle Sepp who has taken over the court; the too clever aunt Herlinde who still, nevertheless, marries; the grandpa in the hospital; Martin who has fought twenty years ago as passionately as in vain for aunt Gerti and leads today a pleasure establishment as successfully as hardened. But really importantly the meetings with both child friends are of that time. Ada whom he wanted to marry as a ten-year-old and whose picture was in way of all later relations is a widow and has a son. Ila, from Gregor and Ada at that time as a courageous outsider admired, is a gas station attendant and Phantast.
