“CINDERELLA MEETS BONNIE AND CLYDE IN THIS HAUNTING TALE OF THE BOOM AND BUST OF CAPITALISM” Christine toils away in a provincial Austrian post office when, out of the blue, a telegram arrives inviting her to join an American aunt she’s never known in a fashionable Swiss resort. Bowed by the grinding poverty and hardships of the post-war years and anxious about her ailing and dependent mother she accepts, only to be swept up into a world of almost inconceivable wealth and unleashed desire. She feels herself utterly transformed. Then, just as abruptly, her aunt cuts her loose and she has to return to the post office, where, yes, nothing will ever be the same. Christine meets Ferdinand, a bitter war veteran and disappointed architect, forced to work on construction sites. They are drawn to each other, just as they are crushed by a sense of deprivation, of anger and shame. Yet their attempts at seduction and love can only flounder among the degradations of poverty until, in one desperate and decisive act, they find a way to remake their world from within.
