Don't Mess With Mum - A New Life

PLOT

Carlo Sonnenfeld is overjoyed when his former employer offers him a new job. Problem is, it's in Berlin, far from Regensburg. Carlo's wife Tina supports his decision to accept the post, and hopes to find a job for herself in a Berlin law firm. The rest of the family is none too keen on the idea, however, and Grandma reluctantly moves into a retirement home. Teenager Nico enrolls in a boarding school but has trouble adapting to life there. Worst off is Sarah, who's fallen head over heels in love with Timo and can't live without him. The family's life begins turbulently in Berlin, especially after Tina gets a job and abdicates her post as official family mover and shaker. But while Carlo's new boss makes impossible demands on him, Tina's makes no demands at all – other than coffee and copies. Then Sarah's boyfriend makes a not entirely welcome appearance in Berlin, followed by Nico, who's run away from school, and Grandma, who can't stand being surrounded by old people. The only one missing is Sven, who has a job in Regensburg. But can it be long before he, too, returns to the family fold?
