Synopsis (press kit)
Lisa Hellmann grew up in a patchwork family with her father, changing mothers and grandmother. No wonder she has a strong desire for a healing family. As a foreign language correspondent, she moved to Barcelona, where she got to know and love the smart Emilio. She thinks she is at the end of her dreams and will soon marry into the venerable family de Alvarado, the Spanish bank nobility.
Tradition demands that Lisa be baptized before the great Catholic wedding can take place with all relatives and she becomes part of the family. The close circle of Alvarados has just gathered for baptism in the cathedral, when Lisa's grandmother Ingeborg blasts the event. The old 68-year-old can't believe that the granddaughter obviously wants to leave behind the past and the values of her own family for her dream of a picture book family.
Ingeborg suspects, of course, that the Alvarados could only get wealth because the business is not running "cleanly". Just right, if you took over a bank in Franco's time. And for that the granddaughter should now submit to the yoke of the Catholic Church?
But the even more important question is: does Lisa really love her Emilio? Lisa doesn't want to hear all this, and yet the beautiful glow of the de Alvarado family crumbles through Ingeborg's insistent questions and also through a lawsuit that Emilio's cousin Pablo is taking against the bank.
When the family secret can no longer be concealed and Emilio refuses to explain, the dispute between the Hellmann and de Alvarado families escalates – a showdown between Ingeborg and Alexandra. Deeply unsettled, Lisa withdraws from everyone. It takes time to organize her thoughts.
Lisa Hellmann is in love with the Catalan bank heir Emilio and would let herself even baptized in order to be accepted by his family. Lisa’s hippie grandmother Ingeborg could interact and throws the plans of her granddaughter overboard. The two women from different generations engaged in a slugfest on conservative family values. Because Grandma Ingeborg truly sees no need of marriage. Slowly the lavish wealth and the patriarchal demeanor of Emilio’s family loses its appeal in Lisa’s eyes and his cousin Pablo begins to look much more attractive to her. Lisa begins to reconsider her initial plans.
