Lou (Josephine Ehlert)’s life is like a rollercoaster ride: desired by two admirers, she must make a decision. Eve (Teresa Rizos), on the other hand, is making definite plans for marriage and procreation. Tati (Xenia Tiling) is absorbed in her role as a cool full-time super-mommy, and Mel (Genija Rykova) is still searching for Mr. Right. Nothing is as it once was; everything is constantly changing. People keep falling in love, being loved, reproducing, and being brought together as patchwork families. The four friends strike out in new directions, pursuing a career or maybe not, searching for meaning, and making old mistakes as well as new ones. A new round of emotional turmoil starts off with four new episodes of this award-winning Bavarian hit series about an irresistible female foursome, which was a sensation at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2018 its first time around.
