LAKE PHOENIX, 1ST SEASON, EPISODE 1-2
Worlds collide at Dortmund‘s Phoenixssee Lake, which usually never meet: The locals from blue-collar Hörde suburb, the Neurath family, and the nouveau riche who just moved into the upscale development, the Hansmann family. Then the two antagonists wind up in financial and family trouble, and surprisingly start discovering common ground.
