Juri’s return has not only turned Katharina’s feelings and her everyday life upside down. When Juri also makes contact with her son Paul, she suspects the danger this poses to her marriage and family life. In fact, Juri finds out about the best-kept secret and Katharina has no choice but to tell Georg that Paul is not his biological son. While Georg had always suspected it, but didn’t want to jeopardise their happiness together, Paul’s incomprehension about the lie is great. Katharina has to do everything she can to win back her son’s trust.
