Farmer Hanni (Rosalie Thomass) is desperate. Her daughter Magdalena (Romy Butz) complains of illness symptoms, but no one can determine what the child is missing. Most doctors think the girl is a simulant. In her search for a doctor who can finally interpret the symptoms, Hanni is increasingly neglecting her husband (Florian Karlheim) and her two older sons, which her mother-in-law (Gisela Schneeberger) uses to incite the family against her. But Hanni goes on her way, even rolls medical literature herself, and finally meets the endocrinologist Dr. Espach (Sylvana Krappatsch), who can help her. But with a diagnosis and a possible operation with a specialist in New York for Hanni the fight is not yet over. She goes to Munich's district court to take responsibility for all the doctors who have not believed her daughter's complaints.
