Although she really wanted to become a racecar driver, Barbara is now an architect. The stability of her designs reflects the stability in her life, or so it seems. Then one day, Ilke, her daughter from a previous marriage, arrives in Berlin. With the help of a private detective with mysterious contacts, Ilke finds her mother after twenty lost years. She enters Barbara's house, her life and her family without causing a shake-up. But then the detective shows up and wants a piece of Barbara's life too, causing everything to spin out of control. Finally, Barbara must face her long-ignored past, eye to eye.
