Julia and Sven Meibach enjoy their work running a successful carpenter’s shop together. But when Sven falls into a coma after an accident and wakes up later with amnesia, he cannot recognize his wife Julia. Confused and overwhelmed, he moves back in with his wealthy parents Marlene and Olof. Marlene, in particular, is happy with the development and sees her second chance to get Sven back on the right track: Sven is to give up the carpenter’s shop, complete his law studies and, above all, find a new, socially equal wife in the form of the pretty Kristina Feldkamp. Julia is desperate. Why can’t Sven remember their love? Yet she doesn’t give up and tries to win Sven back with all her means.
