The happy gay couple David (Max von Pufendorf) and Khaled (Omar El-Saeidi) would love to get married publicly, if it wasn't for Khaled's Arab family and especially his homophobic father Aledrissi (Ramin Yazdani). David's mother Lea (Maren Kroymann) is also having problems, as she has just found her way back to her Jewish faith. When suddenly Sarah turns up, pregnant and claiming that the child is David's, David and Khalid are in crisis: Khaled is angry with David because of his affair, David feels betrayed, because Khaled won't come out. Can they weather the storm?
