The self-confident, life-affirming German-Persian Nico (Sara Fazilat) loves her job as a geriatric nurse and is popular with everyone because of her easy-going manner. She enjoys the Berlin summer with her best friend Rosa (Javeh Asefdjah) until a racially motivated attack tears them out of their carefree everyday life. Nico realises that she does not belong as naturally as she always thought.
Nico withdraws more and more and not only Rosa loses touch with her, but also her patients do not recognise the young woman. Nico feels that things cannot go on like this and starts a hard karate training. This enables her to channel her anger, but she also loses touch with herself. When Nico meets the Macedonian Ronny (Sara Klimoska, European Shooting Star 2021), a connection develops between the two women that makes Nico question the path she has chosen.
