A successful publishing editor in her mid-30s, Sophie (Christiane Paul) is happy enough to be single. But deep down she'd love to have a family of her own. Then she meets Fritz Mertens (Fritz Karl): a dentist, fresh from his divorce and open to a new relationship – but with no strings attached please. He has enough of those already in the shape of his 12-year old son Vincent, who in turn lives with him and his mother in Munich. Sophie and Fritz fall in love. But can there be a future for a "second-hand" man and a woman with her own hopes of happiness?
