“This is the story of an adolescent in East Germany. It is Noah’s story. His father George leaves the family shortly after Noah is born. He returns to Angola, where he was once born. In Noah’s story, George is the absent father. However, it is not Noah yearning for him but his mother Susanne. And Susanne never yearns for her son.

Mais in Deutschland und anderen Galaxien/Corn in Germany and Other Galaxies is also the story of Noah’s mother Susanne. She was born in East Germany and is misunderstood early on. Consequently she revolts against everyone and everything – against her parents, against the state, against motherhood. Mais in Deutschland und anderen Galaxien is a fairy tale and a comic, repeatedly invaded by reality.”
