By describing the identity crisis of the European middle class, the play speaks to the dual nature of the trauma caused by loss: is it more important to confront the feeling of loss, or the fact that we grieve for something we never really had?
A married couple in their late thirties live a comfortable life in the suburbs of Klagenfurt. Apart from worrying about crises such as a new war in Europe, increasing social inequality and the threat of climate change, their only serious problem and life challenge so far is their unsuccessful attempts to have a child. We enter their story on the day they discover that an expensive necklace has disappeared, which, in addition to its material value, also has great emotional value as a gift from a well-known Austrian post-war feminist author. The feeling is all the worse because the necklace was not stolen on the street, but from their home. The decision to find the culprit leads to a part of the city that the couple did not even know existed.
