Olof Müller (Dietmar Burkhard) works as a cook, but without a permanent position. After helping Jenny (Andrea Meißner) and her aunt Ria (Karin Ugowski) with a car breakdown, he throws off his seasonal work and moves back to Berlin. He begins an intimate relationship with Jenny and hopes that she will support him in his planned career as a pianist, because Aunt Ria is a lecturer at the music academy and has offered him her help. Olof is now using the two women for his purposes. There is a bad awakening when Olof's real character shows up.
