In this engaging story of a romantic struggle, Sybille Seewald (Christine Schorm) has successfully managed a company's kitchen for two decades and as a reward, the bosses throw her a dance party one evening, where she meets Harald (Jörg Gudzuhn) at the bar. Both are facing a similar mid-life crisis: Harald's wife has died, a victim of breast cancer, and Sybille is not completely satisfied spending her evenings alone. It does not take long for the two to find that they are highly suited to each other: Harald needs a mother for his children and Sybille wants to get away from work and just take care of a home. Almost as a matter of convenience, the two decide to share their lives, and everything would be fine except Sybille has her own ideas about how to run a family and a household, and Harald has his old ways of doing things - clashes begin to occur, and to occur with more frequency, until Sybille flies the nest and heads back to work. It is at that point that she starts to "get in touch with" her feelings, finding a few surprises as she does so.
