A routine check-up reveals that Pilates trainer Kathrin is suffering from kidney disease and needs a transplant. Her husband, Arnold, is a successful architect in the middle of a large project and is afraid of donating one of his kidneys. Götz, a friend of the couple, would undergo the operation immediately if it meant saving Kathrin’s life — even though it would cause problems with his partner, Diana. Confronted by issues of life and death, the fragility of the relationships within and between the couples is laid bare. Eventually, the question can no longer be avoided: What is true love?
