When the young and (back then) unsuccessful poet Johann Goethe (Alexander Fehling) neglects his law studies, his fuming father sends him off to a court of justice in a sleepy town, where Goethe falls in love head over heels with young Lotte (Miriam Stein). While their young love seems a perfect match, they both are unaware of the fact that Lotte is to marry Kestner, Johann’s boss (Moritz Bleibtreu), and was promised to him long ago.
