Geht nicht gibt's nicht

Geht nicht gibt's nicht

Down in the dumps because she didn't get the apprenticeship she wanted, 18-year-old Conny works at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. She's always broke, still lives at home with her three younger step-siblings, and has to fight for space at home and and the attention of her parents. Ever since her step-father lost his job and sits at home all day, she has only one wish: to get outta here!

Then one day she meets Mike and falls madly in love with him. He treats her like a queen and shortly thereafter the two move in together. But as soon as the newness of the situation wears off, Conny finds out that Mike is very much in debt. Although she is shocked, she wants to help in and agrees to taking out a joint credit to pay off the debt. To make matter worse, she then finds out that she is pregnant and realizes that she has to face reality. But Mike is completely overwhelmed by the situation, and the only person who seems to want to take care of Conny is, surprisingly, her step-father Heinz.
