Her half-siblings play Christoph Luser ("Der Knochemann") as "Maximilian Hochstetten", Laurence Rupp (u. A. "Das Sacher") as "Leander" and Patricia Aulitzky (inter alia, "Lena Lorenz") as "Silvia".

The scripts come from the pen of Lea Schmidbauer, which among other things, the books for the successful cinema and book series "Ostwind" delivered.
Alexandra Winkler (24, Julia Franz Richter) lives alone in Vienna, where she works in a large bakery. One day she holds a will in the hand, which makes her the sole heir of the Trakehner stud Hochstetten. Alexandra, raised by adoptive parents, always thought that her two parents died long ago in a traffic accident. Completely unexpected, she now has three half-siblings - Maximilian (Christoph Luser), Silvia (Patricia Aulitzky) and Leander (Laurence Rupp), who already had other plans with their inheritances and knew neither of the will, nor of the illegitimate half-sister. While Alexandra, on the one hand, feels an indispensable yearning for family, she has to learn to defend herself against the hostility of her charismatic and power-obsessed half-brother Maximilian and his lover Maggie Loss (Jeanette Hain). At the same time, one by one, a gloomy family secret stripped away. She finds support in the friendship with the Trakehner horse "December" and with her friend Paula Novak (Mariam Hage).
