They are both new in Berlin: Dina, the wife of a seasoned Bulgarian football star, and Judith, the young girlfriend of an uprising German footballer. They are the two new "WAGs" (footballer's Wife And Girlfriend) of the Berlin football club. On Saturdays they watch their men playing football, but apart from that, they’ve nothing to do. While Dina lost herself in her abundance and weariness during her long years she is living this „WAG“-life, spring chicken Judith finds her new life beside her boyfriend exciting.
