Wiebke (Nina Hoss, PHOENIX) and her adopted nine-year-old daughter Nicolina live alone on an idyllic horse farm. After many years of waiting, Wiebke now has the chance to adopt another girl, five-year-old Raya, to provide Nicolina with the sister she's always wanted. What begins as a harmonious new family takes a turn for the worse when Raya's increasing aggression grows violent, forcing Wiebke to make a tough decision about her new daughter.
