Osvald is a man who has a photo of the most beautiful woman in the world. The woman is tanned, has a birthmark and wears a delicate golden chain around her neck. Osvald also has four billion dollars. He obtained his fortune from the goldfish that lives in the river behind his house. Frozen to the bone, Laura and Roland arrive at the forest cabin where Osvald lives. They are offered shelter and a warm welcome. This is not an easy situation for Osvald, since miracles, which tend to be distant and unattainable, have finally come to him. Four billion dollars is what tests the love of Laura and Roland. Merciless humanity and a story with unexpected twists and turns keep faith in miracles alive, but show that you must handle it with caution. So that love’s labours aren’t lost.
