Hella is thirty and a pharmacist. Her previously rather dreary love life gets a completely unexpected kickstart when three totally different kinds of men suddenly come into her life. Levin, a student with a liking for money, fast cars and beautiful women; Dieter, an ex-con with domestic ambitions; and Pavel, a romantic with a sense of family. As she initially has difficulty in making her mind up, a solution to her problems is offered by a well-stocked medicine chest and a series of mysterious deaths.
