Due to her obnoxious behavior and snappishness, molecular biologist Luise is highly unpopular among her colleagues. Therefore, her boss gladly uses an incident as an excuse to force the 60-year-old into early retirement. At first, Luise hates to be let go, but then she decides to catch up on things she didn't get to do during her career. First and foremost, she wants a baby. Since she saved some of her ovules in freeze-storage many years ago, motherhood is a definitive possibility. Luise even has a sperm donor in mind, yet the young man in question doesn't know it yet. Before Luise can approach him, she makes the acquaintance of his father, a lively gallery owner in his midlife-crisis who is obsessed with youth. Unexpectedly, their initial dislike for each other soon turns to romantic attraction.
