The series tells the story of Lolle (played by Felicitas Woll) who, after school, follows her boyfriend, Tom, from Malente to Berlin. Once there, she discovers that Tom has been cheating on her with another girl.

At the end of season one Lolle and Sven fall in love with each other, knowing that they are second cousins. Their grandparents were siblings on their maternal side where cousins are called 'great' or "Groß" Cousin or Cousine. Their relationship is revealed when Lolle explains to Sven's son Daniel that they are Groß Cousinen (Great cousins) or second cousins in American kinships terms.
