Bloch and Clara have decided to go their separate ways. Clara has allowed herself a “misstep”, which Bloch, always a good judge of character, chooses not to forgive. And so he leaves to stay with his daughter in Cologne and lick his wounds. There he’s in for quite a surprise: For his ex-wife and Leonie’s mother Hannah is also visiting her daughter, looking for support. The result is an odd ex-family constellation that gets feelings running high all around.
