Maja Wegner is in her late thirties and a single mother of a teenage daughter. To give her stale life a new direction, she decides to start all over again in the big city. She sells her house in the countryside, quits her job, and moves with her daughter to Berlin. There, she finds a job as a conductor for the railroad company. Although Maja soon finds new friends in her apartment building, the search for a new life partner does not come off so easily. She puts up a personal ad to find a man – but to no avail. Then, she starts a relationship with a pop song composer who is living in her apartment building, but is soon disappointed by him. With her likable co-worker Gerd, Maja eventually finds a partner who she seriously feels to be the right one for their shared future.
