Helmut Weber enjoys a leisurely life between his farm and his health food store, in which one finds both fennel and antique furniture. People come to visit him in his “nest,” either to chat or to stock up on vegetables from Weber’s garden. It is the scents of childhood that Weber still smells theretraces, as he calls them. They help him find his way back: to himself and to the world he has experienced.
