Markus (Andreas Muller) is a fireman, quite happily married to his wife Ella (Ilka Welz), who goes off on a training weekend with some colleagues. Managing to get drunk he ends up in another women's bed that of Rose (Anett Dornbusch), a waitress. A love triangle unfolds as Markus falls for both women.
Working closely with her non-professional actors, director Valeska Grisebach's drama explores the dilemma Markus has created for himself.
