When his girlfriend Lina gets pregnant, the world of 30-year-old Sascha is in turmoil. Sascha can't imagine to settle down and to be a father, and in his panic, he injures himself in an accident and is hospitalised. While his flatmate and buddy Klaus is convinced that Sascha has to change his ways and finally needs to grow up, Sascha himself is more concerned with the rooming arrangement at the hospital: He has to share the room with 87-year-old Ella, a lively pensioner, whose joyful nature irritates Sascha. But when he realizes that the doctors want Ella to undergo an unnecessary operation, his initial dislike turns to compassion. On the spur of the moment, he and Ella flee from the hospital, and Sascha is determined to fulfil the old lady's biggest dream: to travel to Paris and to find the love of her youth.
