A family of three siblings. Each of them is faced with life challenges and different ideas of solutions. A hymn to the modern family: sleepless nights, morning smiles.

For the siblings Stefan (41), Julia (44) and Tobias (34) life is seemingly alright. Working as a pilot Stefan has no problem to be attractive to women, taking it easy. However, the rekindled contact to his daughter, the result of a former affair, triggers the longing for a more substantial form of love. Stefan's older sister Julia and her husband are spending their holidays in Italy, where they are trying to rekindle their relationship. But when a dog gets hit by a car in the street she immediately shifts her attention to the little animal and obsesses over its well-being. Perhaps Tobias has been a student for a little too long now. But who could judge him? He passionately takes care of his three kids while his wife, a successful businesswoman, provides for the family's income. As Tobias is finally trying to finish an important essay, his siblings send him to their hometown to take care of their sick father. All three siblings have reached a point in their lives where something has to change. Among chaos, mistakes and insecurities they are trying to find a path to the oldest aspiration of mankind – their own kind of happiness.
