      On her last day of work at a Viennese coffee house, Matilda (Clara Diemling) is addressed by Mikka (Sebastian Klemm-Lorenz), a young man with an interest in strangers and their stories. In being part of Mikkas video-project Matilda opens up, telling about her wish to regain her youthfulness.

After trying to reapproach with her pubertal sister and the way younger brother she's up to help her father fixing his motorbike the next morning. In this manner Matilda is trying to open up her father to gain some deeper information about his life.

      A new feeling which is hard to classify for Matilda arises while meeting her fellow student Aurora (Elisabeth Kanettis). The two spend a sunny afternoon in the environments of the charming Aurora just to wake up side by side the next morning in the bed of the same age Viennese woman.

      Not knowing where she's supposed to position herself in life, Matilda starts to a job interview with the possible opportunity to work as a caregiver. She spends the afternoon of this hot summer day at the water with her old school friends Jú (Sophie Wegleitner) and Nico (Viktoria Hillisch). In the evening they start their fun night preparing for a concert in town where Matilda meets Mikka again resulting in a spontaneous road trip of those two aiming to find the lost feeling of their youthfulness and freedom.
