She likes to experiment with vegetables while masturbating and thinks that body hygiene is greatly overrated. She shocks those around her by speaking her mind in a most unladylike manner on topics that many people would not even dare to think of: meet Helen Memel! Helen (CARLA JURI) is a handful for her divorced parents (MERET BECKER and AXEL MILBERG) - yet all she longs for is to see her family reunited. She only feels truly at home with her friend and soul mate Corinna (MARLEN KRUSE), who is her partner in crime as she breaks one social taboo after the other. One day Helen has an intimate shaving accident and ends up in hospital. It is not only the head doctor, Prof Notz (EDGAR SELGE), who considers her an unusual case: she makes waves throughout the hospital with her fierce wit and candid manner. Helen sees a chance to reconcile her parents at her sickbed and finds an ally in her male nurse, Robin (CHRISTOPH LETKOWSKI), who well and truly sweeps her off her feet...
