Café Litzi is the most popular meeting-place in Brodara, an island founded by Norwegian Friedolin Brenmann.
The Litzi affects its patron’s lives in strange and unexpected ways – especially the tumultuous life of Karine Everson. Amidst death and life-threatening situations, Karine realises that the truth has no special status or time of its own in café society, that half-truths are whole lies. Gazing at a statue in Salzburg, Karine becomes aware of the symbolism of running water engulfing and overwhelming her fears and hopes and the life she had known.
A statue’s flowing water may allow Karine to wash and bathe her hands, but never her conscience.
