Dina and Judith are the two new WAGs of the Berlin football club; they are the wife and girlfriend of two football professionals. While Dina lost herself in her abundance and weariness during her long years living a WAG-life, spring chicken Judith finds her new life with an uprising young player exciting. As Dina gets to know her young “colleague” she sees a lot of herself in the naïve girl. She decides to rescue Judith – and finally rescues herself.
