    • Synopsis
    • Kosmos is a thief who works miracles. He arrives in this timeless border town from the wilds weeping, as though a fugitive. No sooner is he there than he rescues a small boy from drowning in the river, and is recognised as a man who works miracles.
      Kosmos, is a rather uncommon person. He never appears to eat nor sleep. His single form of nourishment is the granulated or lump sugar he consumes by the fistful. One of his more striking skills is the ability to scale the tallest trees with uncommon agility. He is also frank in declaring his wish that startles the townspeople: He is looking for love. Soon Kosmos and Neptün, the teenager sister of the rescued boy, grow closer in the most bizarre of ways: imitating the screech of birds in trees and on rooftops.
      Following Kosmos’ arrival, there’s a sudden rash of robberies among the town’s smaller stores. Robberies and miracles follow in quick succession, and in a short time the townspeople learn that Kosmos has a gift of curing people. All the afflicted and the sick troop off after him. Yet a series of unpleasant incidents will lead everyone to fleeing from him. And at the end he will have no other choice but to take flight from the timeless border town, and leave weeping as he did when he arrived.
