They have become a rare breed, those devoted, red blooded physicians whose dedication is to help their patients, make the right decisions and stand their ground. It has become much more common to hide behind the notepads, double-speak and shy away from decisions that may have consequences.
Dr. Stefan Frank (Sigmar Solbach) is one of those old-school authorities, with a hands on attitude and a big reservoir of practical knowledge, kindness and dedication. It is true: he is good-looking, a lady’s man, a guy who has his heart in the right spot. But first of all he is a brilliant physician who takes on responsibility. He is rock solid and reliable. His patients as well as his colleagues and friends trust, his father Eberhard (a doctor as well) and his wife who he loves. His often challenging work sometimes takes a stronger hold of him than his family and friends would wish for. And also in his private life, Frank experiences heavy challenges, sadness und hardship. But the doctor never fails to lose his good spirits and his trust in his ability to help and resolve.
At the beginning of the series Dr. Frank faces the consequences of his radical decision to sacrifice a career as a gynecologist in Heidelberg and a promising situation in a Berlin hospital for the take over of his sick dad’s practice in Munich. The location of the practice at lake Starnberg, the natural beauty of the environment contrast the severity of the complications he has to deal with in his daily professional and private life..
