The life of the Färber family is completely unhinged after a bizarre accident leading to the mother’s death. While Markus clings onto the past and cannot come to terms with the loss of his wife, his fifteen-year-old daughter Kim runs away to Denmark with Alex, a cool guy who has dropped out of school, and visits the setting of her childhood. Together with his mother Gerlinde and her lively caretaker, Paula, Markus sets off to search for his daughter and so embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
