Two confirmed bachelors, Celestus and Frantz, have a very comfortable living in their small cottage home in 19th Century Austria. Genially cared for by Celestus’ sister Martha and able to dedicate themselves entirely to their studies of astronomy and philosophy, their lives are simple and perfect --until a baby arrives in a basket.
