Rosemarie meets Kasun in Sri Lanka. He takes her with him to a full moon festival with white elephants by the sea, and before long she has lost her heart.
Back in Germany, she goes to all lengths to get a visa for the 27-year-old Singhalese and in spite of her limited financial means stands surety for him. As yet she has no idea that Kasun is going to disappoint her bitterly. It is on the verge of being a miracle that she forgives him. But for a woman who can see deep into the hearts of other people it is a matter of course.
A true story as only Hera Lind can write.
