Maggie accidentally runs over her obnoxious landlord Chris. Now he asks her, of all people, to help him cope with his amnesia. But does Maggie really want Chris to turn back into an arrogant creep?
There is a memory in every corner of the house where Maggie (Nadja Bobyleva) lives with her lovably odd father George (Peter Sattmann). She also runs her small tourist office there, from which George starts his original city tours in the footsteps of the American Pilgrim Fathers, despite his increasing forgetfulness.
But now landlord Chris (Bernhard Piesk) wants to use the house as a summer residence and cancels the lease. Maggie is most concerned about her father, whose condition threatens to worsen with a change in familiar surroundings.
When she speeds off in a huff after an argument with Chris, she accidentally runs him over. The arrogant Sunnyboy has lost his memory after the accident, and with it not only any recollection of his altercation with Maggie – he also seems to have completely forgotten what an egotistical creep he actually is.
When he asks Maggie, of all people, to help him overcome his amnesia, she initially senses only a chance to foist a new lease on her house on him. But then she begins to feel honest compassion for him. The key to Chris’s memory is emotional moments from his past, and so Maggie accompanies him on a journey to his roots, though he seems to have cut them off long ago. His unconventional mother Iris (Sabine Postel) warmly welcomes them to her eco-farm, although it turns out that Chris himself has been talking family members into risky financial investments.
Maggie comes under increasing pressure; her double-cross could be exposed at any time. And since she has fallen in love with the “new” Chris, she doesn’t want the “old” one back at all….
