Waiting in the chimney, Florian considers the future. He plans to try and get from Kiel to Denmark where his sister, Anni, is living with their great aunt. He has the stolen identity card of a German soldier Emilia killed in the woods. He considers using it to disembark the ship without incident, especially since Koch is looking for him.
Once again, Florian’s future can be bought through manipulated identity papers. As always, he is motivated by thoughts of his family, and specifically by thoughts of being reunited with his long-lost sister.
