Als er auf die Bitte seines Bruders eine verprügelte Frau vorübergehend bei sich wohnen lässt, gerät er ins Philosophieren. Lars wird von der verheirateten Isabell beschimpft, weil er im Bett versagte, nachdem er zuvor sein Gehalt verspekuliert hatte.

Die Galeristin Nadine muss erleben, dass ihr Lebensglück plötzlich an einem 21-jährigen Studen¬ten hängt, den sie zuvor als „Spielzeug“ benutzt hatte. Wir erfahren, dass Valentina mit Unterstützung ihres 16-jährigen Sohnes alles aufgibt, um einen Neuanfang zu wagen, obwohl ihr dabei angst und bange ist, und wie die 32-jährige Ariane nach kurzer Ehe ihren untreuen associate ausquar-tiert, um ihre vereisten Gefühle aufzutauen.
