Nine people meet in the park: a painter, a specialist in the physic sciences, a Germanist lady, an ecologist, a priest, a gardener, a member of Parliament and two electricians. All of them search for knowledge and self-fulfillment through the crafts that give birth and nurture our world, through God, the self and also sexual satisfaction.
The reader takes part in discussions full of emotion on the Arts, Science, Philosophy, and Religion, enters the world of the voyeur, witnesses the blossoming of a great love, and lives the tragedy of two women who are murdered, two men who face death and a third one in dispair.
The author opens the reader's eyes and shows new paths, surpassing the frame of everyday experience, as he takes a look at the extraordinary, leading the reader to new fields, up to a new God and fantastic visions. He examines the essential problems of current humankind from an unusual perspective. Thus the ground for a new human world is finally established: a new understanding of the world which gives a new meaning to human life; a realistic, sincere self-comprehension that sets us free.
