By Judith Hermann.
A girl who lives in "a sea-green world" is bequeathed a red coral bracelet with beads that glow "as red as rage".
This bracelet ties the girl emotionally and physically to her exotic grandmother's scandalous past and to a highly unsuitable boyfriend.
How can the girl break these ties? Does she want to? A powerful story about colour, anger and "that moment before happiness".
Translated from the German by Margot Bettauer Dembo and abridged for radio by Doreen Estall.
