Dr. Patricia Engel, an attorney specializing in medical malpractice, deals with a variety of cases in this controversial domain. Her private life is also turbulent, for she has learned that her husband wants to leave his family. But she is prepared to fight... A young Ukrainian boy was brought to a German clinic by a professional patient broker. Although a high sum was paid for the child's operation, his pain does not go away. In addition, the boy and his mother are penniless. Rescue – both medical and financial – comes from Patricia's father, a doctor. In Patricia's second case, Stefan Binder denies the existence of a living will of his wife. He refuses to let the clinically dead woman die. His son Jonas wants to force the authorities to let her pass away in peace. Patricia can understand both sides and turns down the case. Yet she still tries to mediate.
