Munich lawyer Peter Baumann's marriage falls apart. His wife Katja moves to a Bavarian mountain village to become rural assistant (social worker). To her surprise, she's assigned the case of old cattle farmer Senner Sepp, who never leaves his alp meadow and home, but whose daughter wants him 'safely' in a rest home. Katja's daughter Kiki hates being dragged along and arranges for Peter to join them uninvited. Kiki's initial rudeness to handsome, courteous fatherless farmer son Matze Gmeiner soon turns, but the arrival of her brat friends spoils that budding romance till further notice.
