"The Air Rescue Team" is a perfectly practised team. They have nerves of steel and are ready for action within seconds when-ever there are serious casualties in Hamburg who need to be rescued. They operate around the clock and are wide awake upon command, since a moment of inattentiveness can cost human lives. The emergency doctor Maren, the pilot Alexander, the on-board mechanic Max, and the medics Thomas and Leo have committed themselves to the motto "search and rescue". Whether it is food poisoning in a nursery school, twins born in a high-rise, a heart attack in prison, an allergic shock during cosmetic surgery, a ship in danger of explosion, a dramatic traffic accident - whatever happens, the air rescuers are there. Of course, the five partners and friends also have personal challenges to meet: Max has problems with his great love, Lisa - Maren succumbs again to the fascination of her ex husband - Thomas worries about his son, Joschi - Alexander's flying license is at risk. They are all relieved to discover that they can remain what they are: "The Air Rescue Team".
