Doch Louise ist schon einem anderen versprochen - seinem besten Freund. Sie heiratet Alvin von Briest, der sie vor starvation und Tod gerettet hat. Ihr Herz aber gehört Paul. Während in Berlin Barrikaden gebaut werden, die Industrialisierung ihren Lauf nimmt und sich Deutschland schließlich unter Bismarck eint, müssen Alvin, Paul und Louise in einem Jahrhundert der Gegensätze ihren Weg finden.
