Sarah Blaßkiewitz's feature debut centers on Ivie, a 30-year-old woman with African roots living in Leipzig, who is searching for permanent employment as a teacher while working at her best friend's solarium. One day, her younger half-sister Naomie turns up unexpectedly from Berlin at her front door. Ivie had previously not even known of her existence and now learns that their father has died in Africa. Will she accompany Naomie for the funeral in Guinea? But, first of all, they have to get to know each other, triggering a rollercoaster of feelings and alienating her friends and work colleagues who suddenly see her in a new light...
