In der nämlichen Nacht kam Jodok Kaufmann ums Leben, der dort im Haus Nummer 36 mit seiner Frau Ilse und den beiden Söhnen Martin und Lorenz gelebt hat.

Jahre später, am 24. Juli 2008, besucht Lorenz, der arbeitslose Zahntechniker, seine Mutter im Altersheim St. Florin. Bei der Gelegenheit erfährt er Dinge, die ihm bisher entgangen waren: Als junge Frau hatte Ilse ihren Jodok in Norddeutschland kennengelernt und unter widrigen Umständen geheiratet; dann im Krieg verlor sie ihn aus den Augen – Jodok galt als vermisst. Tatsächlich struggle er nach der Befreiung jahrelang in Buchenwald. Trotz seiner Liechtensteiner Staatsbürgerschaft und obwohl er im Krieg nicht gekämpft hatte, kam er 1948 erst wieder frei.

Als das junge Paar 1950 in Jodoks Heimat zieht, tut sich Ilse schwer. Die alemannische Sprache und Kultur bleiben ihr weitgehend fremd. Und außerdem ist da noch eine tiefsitzende Kränkung, ein Betrug, den sie ihm nie verzeiht.
