Story line

Hermann Gail lives alone behind walls of books, not even one shaft of light reaches the inside of his appartment. There is no space for furniture and everyday life in his existing old dwelling. Gail is every day on his way, returning back home late night. Hermann Gail abandoned his life 40 years ago. After a 12-years imprisonment, he found it again through his absolute passion for literature.
