1976 herrscht Dürre in Europa, seit Wochen drückt eine wahnsinnige Hitze auf die Felder - eine Katastrophe für die Landwirtschaft. Den Hof der Sutters in der französischen Schweiz trifft es besonders hart: Der Bauer und Familienvater hat sein ganzes Vermögen in die Hühnerzucht gesteckt, und die Küken sterben in der Hitze weg; die Mutter quartiert eine geheimnisvolle Fremde auf dem Hof ein, die sich als ihre Geliebte herausstellt; der geistig zurückgebliebene Knecht Rudy wird, als ein fürchterliches Gewitter ausbricht, von einem Balken erschlagen; und für den 13-jährigen Gus ist es das Ende seiner Kindheit. Wuchtig, farbig, zum Anfassen plastisch lässt Butis Roman eine Welt entstehen im Moment ihres Untergangs
