An outsider in India, where he has fled from Nazi Germany, Hugo Baumgartner finds his painful past dredged up when he offers to help a wild young German hippie.
He struggled and heaved, fought to get out from under it, hitting out with his arms. Lotte muttered in angry protest. Remorsefully, Baumgartner rubbed her rubbery red arms, then struggled out of bed, groaning, ‘And no Mittagessen, no lunch, even have we had. Lotte, won’t you make some Mittagessen now?’. She muttered something inaudible, and threw her head about on the pillow. Baumgartner sighed, straightened his clothes and stumbled towards the table.

Hugo Baumgartner is a man who doesn't belong anywhere. He's a Berlin Jew who travelled to India to escape the Nazis and, after years spent the mercy of his past and his tumultuous adopted land, he has now retired to a seedy cat-filled apartment behind Bombay's Taj Hotel. But destiny has not finished with Baumgartner, in this haunting tale of the afflictions of exile.
Hugo Baumgartner lives in squalor behind Bombay's Taj Hotel with his cats and his memories. Then an encounter with fair-haired Kurt, a young German hippie desperate for drug money, unleashes his past: an affluent childhood in Berlin until Hitler came into power, when his father, after temporary detention in Dachau, committed suicide, his boycotted furniture business nearly in ruins.
