Without telling his wife Hanna, Jakobs travels 150 kilometers to Berlin, to meet, unannounced, with his three grown up children. Karla, Arnolt and Sonni seem to be leading successful lives in the big city; but, on closer inspection, they are in the middle of various crises, which have a common cause: their lack of independence. Hanna joins them in the evening and Jakob lets them know, that he and Hanna are no longer able to support them financially. After a family quarrel and a painful revelation of lies, every one of them becomes aware of just how little he or she knows about the others.
