Marko Martin ― nominated for the Leipzig Book Fair Prize in 2019 for »Das Haus in Habana« [tr: The House in Havana] ― spent the turn of the year 2019/ 2020 in Hong Kong. He took part in the democracy protest movement without suspecting that it would be the last for quite some time. For with the onset of the corona pandemic, all freedoms were quickly lost. A city portrait that takes a stand against dictatorship and ignorance.
