Caren Blumberg (Christina Hecke) is seriously ill and urgently needs a new kidney. Her husband Sebi (Benjamin Sadler) is not a possible donor – due to a lack of suitable medical values. It is similar with a second couple, patient Jan Kempe (André Szymanski) and his wife Birthe (Annette Frier). The joint kidney specialist Dr. Vollhard (Johannes Ahn) suggests organ donation crosswise to the four. To get a go from the ethics committee, the quartet has to pretend to be close friends, but the Blumbergs and Kempes, who come from different milieus, quickly realize that they don’t really like each other. Is their attempt at friendship – and thus their mutual organ donation – doomed to failure?
