Four friends and a promise: Their lives should not be boring. That's why Höppner , Frieder, Vera and Cäcilia just decide to do everything differently from what is usually done in the countryside: they move to the Auerhaus together and found a shared flat under the disapproving eyes of the villagers. To celebrate the moment, to break all the rules - and above all to save their buddy Frieder from himself. Because he is not so sure why he should live at all. But, how long can the walls of the Auerhaus protect the magic of this community?
The surprise bestseller by blockbuster author Bov Bjerg has sold more than 250,000 hard copies and has already been staged in front of an impressed audience at 40 German drama theaters.
