This is a story of a young German man Michel, whose dream is to lead a simple life far from civilization. He lives in the Ukrainian mountains and is taking care of endangered animals – water buffaloes. After 10 years of being a loner, Michel falls in love with Vera, a woman from his hometown in Germany, who has two small kids from the previous relationship. Michel moves back to Germany and is trying to create a new family with Vera. After all Michel has to decide – is love worth a broken dream?
