Crime radio play by Gerhart Herrmann Mostar

John Walker tried his luck in New York. His old mother is happy about his letters from afar. When they suddenly fail to appear, the caring postman promises to go in search of John. He learns from the press that his son, convicted of murder, is awaiting execution. The postman visits the death row inmate and persuades him to compose letters “in reserve” to his mother. Because she shouldn’t know anything about his actions. And so John Walker invents for her the successful life that he had actually hoped for in New York.
