Luisa (Lina Beckmann) races through her life. From job home, from husband to lover, from peanut flips to raw food diet. Who doesn’t find that too much at some point? When the couple therapist wakes up one morning, she is suddenly doubled. She split overnight into the old Luisa and the new Ann (Lina Beckmann). On the outside they look completely the same, but otherwise they are completely different. Luisa is constantly worrying about everything. Ann is deeply relaxed and stuffs everything she wants into herself. After the first shock Luisa recognizes the unexpected possibilities that the second self opens up for her: Finally she can burn away with her lover Leopold (Benno Fürmann), while Ann takes care of her husband Richard (Charly Hübner).
