A small village in Brandenburg. Anne (Meret Becker) lives here – lonely and bitter, with metre-high protective walls around her heart. Her husband is long dead, she is at odds with the village, and she hasn’t heard from her daughter Julia (Emma Bading) for years. Then one day her eight-year-old granddaughter Tilda (Luise Landau) turns up on her doorstep. She needs a new home because her mother is in prison. Anne reluctantly takes in her granddaughter, determined to get rid of her at the first opportunity. But Tilda, who is in no way inferior to Anne in terms of fighting spirit and stubbornness, stubbornly fights for her place in Anne’s heart and forces her to confront the ghosts of the past.
