Gwendolyn Shepherd (Maria Ehrich) is actually a very normal 16-year-old teenager. The only annoying thing is that her family definitely has a few too many secrets. They all have something to do with a time-travel gene that is passed down from generation to generation. Everyone is certain that Gwen’s cousin Charlotte (Laura Berlin) has the gene, and so everything is about Charlotte, all the time. Until one day Gwen suddenly finds herself in London at the end of the 19th century.

She knows immediately that she must be the one born to be a time traveller – even if she could most certainly do without it. Just as she could do without Charlotte’s arrogant boyfriend Gideon de Villiers (Jannis Niewöhner), with whom she has to join forces in order to throw light on the secrets of her family history. One thing is clear to Gwen: She will do everything possible to solve the ancient mysteries surrounding her family. But what isn’t quite so clear, is that one should do one’s best not to fall in love between the different times. For that makes things rather complicated!
