18-year-old Kai is starting his training to become a police officer, while 16-year-old Sandra will move into a home for people with cognitive disabilities. Sandra, in particular, is finding it hard to leave. Like her fellow foster children, she has grown very attached to Susanne, whom she calls Mama. Susanne, too, is finding it's not easy to let go. One foster child after another is leaving home, while her own kids have already left. Some even have families of their own. They still all get together on weekends, but how long will that last? A report by Almut Maria Röhrl.
