Sven is living with his demented mother Edeltraut, sharing her life, her apartment, and even her bed. While during the day he is working as a bank clerk, Daniel comes to the apartment to watch over Edeltraut. He takes her out for walks, to the hairdresser and grocery shopping while also keeping the place tidy. Then, one day while cleaning windows, Daniel is locked out by Edeltraut on the balcony and the lady disappears on her own. Sven and Daniel embark on a search for her together. Yet, in the course of the events they do not only find Edeltraut but also gentle affections for each other that turn their lives around well and truly.
