Summary: Raimund Gregorius is a Latin teacher from Berne. Encountering a book by the Portuguese poet and doctor Amadeu de Prado, he takes a train to Lisbon determined to find out more about the writer who appears to ask the very same questions that plague him: the purpose of human deeds and the unrealised potential of each and every life. His restless quest across Lisbon uncovers a contradictory portrait of a clever and brave yet conflicted man who lived at the time of Salazar’s dictatorship.
