After more than fifty years, Leni meets her first dance school love Max again. The affection and attraction are immediately there again. But Max doesn't show up at the very next appointment. Concerned, Leni visits him at home and learns that her forgetful boyfriend has been assigned a partial legal guardian by order of the court. Leni becomes suspicious because this guardian has apparently left Max in the unheated house without money or medical care. But many ills are due to Max's temporary confusion and, through Leni's intervention, the necessary help is promptly provided. However, when Max assaults an employee of the care service, he is taken to a retirement home the same day. Leni wants to give Max a life in his own home, but she initially fails to have the care lifted and take over herself. In her investigations, she comes across strange inconsistencies and, contrary to expectations, finds helpful accomplices in her fight against instances and authorities.
