After the rowing team from Bergbrunn Castle sports boarding school lose an important race against the competition, all hopes rest on 16-year-old long jumper Liv Sellmann. She needs to get into Germany’s athletic squad, otherwise the school can forget receiving premium accreditation from the Ministry of Culture and Education and the funding that goes with it. As Liv's sporting performance has recently taken a nosedive, Liv's mother Marie, who won an Olympic gold with Nele's father Bernie as her trainer, announces she is coming to visit. Nele has to discover what is going on with the girl and try to protect her from the weight of expectation on her shoulders. This new case for Nele Seitz offers a glimpse into her own past.
