Lydia Elman (Gesine Cukrowski) is certainly no helicopter mother, but when her daughter Holly (Emilia Bernsdorf) falls in love with a decidedly problematic boy, she resorts to rather unconventional means.
School psychologist Lydia has a problem: Her 17-year-old daughter Holly wants to go on a trip with Simon (Tobias John von Freyend), one of her most difficult patients. Lydia’s lion mother instinct awakens. However, medical confidentiality forbids her to warn Holly. What to do.
Lydia is a consummate professional when it comes to fledging children. She can’t stress enough how important self-reliance and independence are for adolescent development. That’s why she’d rather bite off her tongue than admit that daughter Holly’s impending departure is getting to her.
Luckily, she’s distracted by a current case: Simon Lambert is new to the school and takes every opportunity to test boundaries. After nearly blowing up the chemistry lab, only therapy with Lydia can save him from expulsion. His single father Peter (Oliver Mommsen) is also supposed to participate in this therapy. The attractive restaurateur is not at all enthusiastic about this, because he doesn’t think much of “psychotics” who interfere with his education.
When Lydia finds out that Simon has a bet going on to see who can get the most girls, and that he is also targeting her daughter Holly, who is quite in love with him, she finds herself in a predicament: medical confidentiality versus maternal care. She finds support from Peter, of all people, who not only brings a smile to her face with his cooking skills.
