When the Hellmanns return from their winter vacation, a surprise awaits them at home: a baby has been left outside their house in the freezing cold. Antonia immediately takes the tiny girl to her heart and shortly thereafter single-handedly applies to the Youth Welfare Office for guardianship of the baby – much to the annoyance of Thomas, who assumes that the birth mother will reappear and that Antonia might develop too strong a bond with the infant in the meantime. When Idowu unexpectedly arrives from Namibia, she comes at the right time for Antonia as a substitute in the clinic: This way she can exclusively take care of the foundling, whom she has named Lucy in the meantime. It doesn’t take long for competition to break out in the hospital between Idowu and the head midwife Vroni. And when Antonia and Thomas’ adopted son Nahas has to be brought home because of a skiing accident, the Hellmann house is turned upside down …
