Von den fünfziger Jahren über das Wendejahr 89 bis zum Beginn des neuen Jahrtausends reicht dieser Roman einer Familie. Im Mittelpunkt drei Generationen: Die Großeltern, noch überzeugte Kommunisten, kehren aus dem mexikanischen Exil in die junge DDR heim, um dort ihren Anteil am Aufbau der neuen Republik zu leisten. Ihr Sohn, als junger Mann nach Moskau emigriert und später in ein sibirisches Lager verschleppt, tritt die Reise vom anderen Ende der Welt, dem Ural, an. Er kehrt mit seiner russischen Frau zurück in eine Kleinbürgerrepublik, an deren Veränderbarkeit er weiterhin glauben will. Dem Enkel wird die Wahlheimat von Eltern und Großeltern indes zusehends zu eng - bis er, ausgerechnet am neunzigsten Geburtstag des Patriarchen, in den Westen geht. Die Strahlkraft der politischen Utopie scheint sich von new release zu new release zu verdunkeln: Es ist die Zeit des abnehmenden Lichts.
