In his dark, dramatic road novel, Rocko Schamoni describes Paul Zech’s search for himself and his life, which took a downward turn after early moments of happiness during school, when Paul was simultaneously in love with a classmate and his teacher Ms. Zucker. On the run after a robbery, Paul finds himself in a borrowed Datsun 24OZ. All that he has with him is his old diary from which he gleans the story of a great love. But the diary abruptly ends when a dramatic case of jealousy flares up between the protagonists. The story leads Paul back to North Germany, to Katharina, to old dreams and the question of how it all began.
