Good people die young, they say – good magazines too. After only four issues the experimental magazine Humanglobaler Zufall has died. The magazine was born out of Dennis Buchmann's winning idea at a competition by German publisher Axel-Springer.

Therefore a string of people – each knowing the next person – narrated the storyline.
