It is the year 1850 and, in search of her great love and father of her unborn child, Helmut (Nico Rogner), the young, self-confident Hannah Brettschneider (Henriette Richter-Röhl) arrives in the small town of Gönningen at the foot of the Swabian Alps. For almost two centuries, Gönningen has been the home of industrious businessmen trading in flower and vegetable seeds. But Hannah's enthusiasm for this unusual place does not last long when she discovers that Helmut is already promised to Seraphine (Katharina Heyer), the most beautiful girl in Gönningen. His mother Wilhelmine (Gundi Ellert) does not want to break the engagement under any circumstances, but his father Gottlieb (Peter Sattmann) has a different opinion.
