A playful romantic has been actively waiting for the return of the love of her life for months – when suddenly her newly separated mother moves in with her in midlife crisis and confronts her with newfangled love concepts and life wisdom in the course of her self-discovery.
Kerstin believes wholeheartedly in true love and has been waiting for months for the return of her ex-boyfriend Thomas. She has made herself comfortable in sugar-coated memories, when suddenly her mother Charlotte appears at the door and wants to move in with her. Because Mom accidentally broke up with her partner in her mid-50s and now doesn’t know where to go. That the two women couldn’t be more different in how they deal with their longing becomes clear at the latest, when Charlotte is unceremoniously inspired by Kerstin’s flatmate to meet new men via an app and bring them straight home with her. Kerstin’s pleasant daydreams are now interrupted more and more frequently by reality, in which true love has become a hopeless coincidence.
