Ginger (Katja Flint), a single mother, lives and works as a waitress in a trendy part of Hamburg. The last thing she hopes to find is a father to her 14-year-old daughter Nico and her 5-year-old son Max. When she starts an affair with Nico’s dancing teacher, her daughter is not the only one to lose his cool – Hans (Matthias Brandt), the chef in the bar where Ginger works, is madly in love with her, too. A spirited and emotional romantic comedy.
