One week before her wedding to her fiance Peter, Gretchen Haase's world falls apart. She returns to Berlin to her parents' house where her father, Professor Franz Haase, makes a suggestion that she applies for an assistant doctor position in surgery at the hospital where he works. Following up on his suggestion, she meets her old school crush Dr. Marc Meier, who works as the head of surgery at the hospital. During their schooldays, he never wasted a day in making her life difficult and never returned her affection. Now as they meet again, he promptly starts to tease her again, this time about her weight, which she is very sensitive about.
