Henry is an unsuccessful screenwriter, and just as unhappy going from one casual relationship to another. Out of the blue he gets a fantastic job offer to co-write the screenplay of a bestselling novel together with Katharina. She is not only the author of the novel, but Henry’s ex-girlfriend and the love of his life. He now has a second chance and things couldn’t get better when an 8-year-old girl, Magdalena, shows up at Henry’s door and turns his life upside down. She’s his daughter from a long-forgotten one night stand eight years ago and her mother Charlotte, who’s attending a court hearing in the US, insists Henry takes care of Magdalena until she returns. Henry is shocked, and so is Tristan, who thought for eight years that he was Magdalena’s biological father. Life will never be the same for any of them.
