Summary
A forlorn traveler is taken in by three orphans: The first, orphaned by history, is in mourning for her father, murdered by the Nazis. The second, orphaned by pathology, has a rare disease, and is facing madness alone in a mountain chalet. The third, orphaned by philosophy, is a teenager who has elected to cut all ties with his parents. This portrait of people forgotten by the world is simultaneously harrowing and droll, broaching essential questions about the difficulty, if not the impossibility, of maintaining one's legacy, one's freedom, or indeed one's happiness
