A foundling, twenty years old, in search of father and mother, in search of the self finds, for the first time, a person for whose love it is worth fighting: Roswitha, a librarian from East Berlin, cast away at the end of the world. Kotzebue is the name of the little town in Northwest Alaska, where the story of these two people takes place, an Eskimo trading post between snowy heavens and the polar sea, discovered by the son of the German comedy writer August von Kotzebue. And Kotzebue is the name of the foundling too, who looks like a young man but in fact is a woman. Following some inner compulsion, she pursues a path to Roswitha’s heart finally declaring her love in a hotel room in Berlin.
