A bittersweet comedy about a generation that never thought it would grow old. The newly retired TV journalist Paul lets himself go and becomes an increasing burden for his wife Christiane. Her friend Marlene is faced with a similar challenge, when her husband Klaus confesses that he has for years been conducting an affair with a younger woman who is now expecting his child. And the world of teacher Heiko and his wife Vera is turned on its head when he is diagnosed with a brain tumour. Three couples, six people and the recognition that in the end it’s only friendship that counts.
