Vera Klunert actually leads a fulfilled life. She has been happily married to Andreas for almost 25 years, has a self-confident, grown-up daughter, lives in a dignified house on the best Dresden hillside and works as a designer in the family leather goods company. But one day Andreas reveals to her that the company is not doing as well as Vera always thought. On the contrary: if a financially strong partner cannot be found soon, the traditional company has to file for bankruptcy. However, Andreas has already identified a potential investor. At the first meeting with the Viennese entrepreneur, Vera could hardly believe her eyes: Her husband's future partner is Vera's childhood sweetheart Werner Hausmann - a love that broke 30 years ago because Werner let her sit in a planned escape attempt to the West and has since then never reported again. It is understandable that Vera, unlike Werner, is not particularly happy about the unexpected reunion.
