Lawyer Anne (Ulrike Folkerts) is involuntarily sent into retirement. But she is definitely still too young and combative to make herself comfortable in the retirement home.
If you turn 60, you’re fired – that’s the motto of the Boston law firm Anne (Ulrike Folkerts) has worked for half her life. Her colleague Leonard (Stephan Szász), who is almost the same age, is promoted to partner at the same time. Officially, Anne is fulfilling a lifelong dream: a small house by the sea. Unofficially, however, she does not know how she will pay for the renovation. Even her daughter Holly (Romina Küper), who has just passed her law exam more or less poorly, can no longer support Anne financially. When Leonard asks her for help in a case despite her dismissal, Anne senses an opportunity to help her daughter get her first job. She also stout-heartedly invites Leonard to an upcoming mother-daughter weekend. Holly doesn’t come alone, however, but in irritating company: her new boyfriend is not only as old as her mother, but also Anne’s ex-lover Joe (Götz Schubert), who has the gall not to recognize her. Anne has never felt so old. Under no circumstances should Joe, whom she still has decidedly bad memories of even after 40 years, interfere on this important weekend….
