Karla is in love with Jonas, but doesn't dare to contact him. Her best friend pushes Karla to call him, which results in an invitation to visit him at the orphanage he lives in. Life is hard when there is no family at all, and Karla, who is crazy about Jonas, tries to comfort him by suggesting looking for his biological mom. They take matters into own hands, and steal Jonas' birth certificate from the principal's drawer. With no money to pay the ticket they jump the train headed for the city where Jonas was born. They cross a grumpy taxi driver, a dubious gang of homeless people, and some strange ladies who share their name with Jonas' mother. The mission seems hopeless, but they may have hit the mark, when they find a beautiful blond hairdresser.
