Clara and Hans and their fifteen-year-old daughter, Jeanne are living a life incognito. Camouflaged as tourists in Portugal,they are trying their best to live a normal life.They are just about to leave for Brazil and a new existence when a break-in at their apartment forces them to escape to Germany. Now bereft of all financial means and almost all hope of safe existence, they have no alternative but to turn to their old friends for support. Back in Germany, Jeanne unexpectedly runs into the young surfer named Heinrich, with whom she had fallen in love in Portugal. Jeanne has never been able to attend a real school, has never had a girlfriend and, in general, has never experienced anything that a normal fifteen-year-old girl would. Although she knows that she is jeopardising her family's security, she cannot break off her relationship with Heinrich.
