Lilo is a resolute woman, creative in her mind and images, until a devastating diagnosis tears her from everyday life and forces her to face unpleasant truths. Without further ado, she makes her escape with the help of the illegal truck driver Sami and unintentionally sets the whole family in motion. Her daughter Carolin can not use all the stress. Her marriage to Andreas lacks every spark of love and passion, her son Vincent barely talks to her and in her job as a taxi driver she finds no fulfillment. But Carolin is intelligent, attractive and quick-witted. Secretly, she longs for the affection of her mother and realizes that in the past and her relationship with Lilo is also the key to their own happiness. But until both women have found each other and their inner peace with each other, some obstacles on the way to the Old Land must be overcome.
Not much to say. It is a charming movie, with good to excellent performances; Hannelore Elsner as Lilo who is terminally ill who decides on the spur of the moment to take a lift from Persian truck driver Sami (Navid Navid) and gathers some old Persian wisdom. Daughter Caro and grandson Vicent catch up with her by way of GPS and join her and Sami. Even rather estranged husband of Caro joins them somewhere along the way to Hamburg (not clear how) and in the end Lilo dies rather happily and certain issues between all of them seem to get solved. However, whatever happened to cat Camus?
