In this routine story about Carla (Janna Marangosoff) a young teen in search of herself as well as her long-lost mother, her conflicts with her police detective father (Peter Sattmann) set off an unpredictable train of events. After Carla's disagreements with her father become too much to handle (he sees traits in her that he hated in his estranged wife who left him a decade earlier), she leaves home to look for the mother she never really knew. That task is not an easy one because her mother moved constantly from one job to the next. As Carla perseveres she runs into her father's nemesis Rick (Eisi Gulp) and takes a liking to him as the kind of parent she really needs. Meanwhile, her father thinks she has been kidnapped, and when Carla sends him a postcard that provides enough information to figure out where she and her supposed kidnapper are located, it does not bode well for her newfound friend Rick.
