On a cold night in Holland, Max Delius - a hedonist, yet a rhetorically brilliant astronomer who loves fast cars, nice clothes, and women - picks up a hitchhiker, Onno Quist, a cerebral, chaotic philologist who cannot bear the banalities of everyday life. They are like fire and water. But soon after they learn that they were conceived on the same day in 1933, it is clear that something special, even extraordinary, is about to happen. At the center of their relationship lies the battle between humanistic values and technological progress ... and an especially radiant child, Onno's son, Quinten. Quinten's sublimity - in his beauty, intelligence, and demeanor - becomes even more apparent when, after the heavens conspire against Onno and Max, Quinten embarks on a journey that can only be completed by a child with his incredible gifts.
