The foundation for this audio drama was built by Benno Müller vom Hofe's edit from the short story In Gefahr, written by Daniel Kehlmann. This short story was published together with 8 additional stories, which deal with independent topics, but still are connected to each other (novel Ruhm).

The audio drama is made of two interlocking storylines. At the beginning we join Leo and Elisabeth on their journey through an unknown country. Leo is a famous writer and currently on a book-signing tour for several cultural institutions.

However, Elisabeth permanently gets torn out of this journey. She acts on behalf of Doctors Without Borders and gets informed about the fact, that some of her colleagues got kidnapped. Besides the main story line, a second story line arises and a race to the death takes its course.
