Antonia (Marion Kracht) and Dr. Thomas Hellmann (Michael Roll) are on their honeymoon in Namibia. The happy couple is fascinated by the impressive African country: beautiful lush green steppe landscapes, wild animals, breathtaking displays of color and impressive desert landscapes. Following the trip, Antonia wants to set up a midwifery school at the bush hospital run by her former colleague Dr. Grothe (Andreas Borcherding). Upon her arrival, of all things, Dr. Grothe has an accident. Thomas spontaneously decides to take his place and stay in Namibia until he recovers. But not without first making sure that everything continues as usual at the maternity clinic on Tegernsee – in Bavaria, of course, Dr. Leitner, Helena and Vroni see to that. Antonia, meanwhile, takes on the great challenge of teaching. The work requires a lot of empathy and persuasion, but also promises wonderful moments with the enthusiastic students from the surrounding area. Far away from the western standard, the committed Antonia manages the balancing act between classical school medicine and traditional African natural medicine not without headwind from her own circles. Along the way, the orphan boy Nahas (Luka Kumi) wins the heart of the newlyweds. Antonia and Thomas want to adopt the eleven-year-old boy – provided Nahas can even imagine living somewhere else and the authorities agree. When head midwife Vroni Stangassinger (Christiane Blumhoff) and her young colleague Helena (Julia Bremermann) show up in Africa, the surprise is perfect.
