Anne Zohra Berrached / Germany / 2016 / 103 min / German

Socially provocative yet intimately penetrating portrait of a modern woman facing the tough decision about the life or death of her unborn child.

Astrid is a comedian who makes people laugh for a living; her husband Markus is her manager and the two of them work well together. They have a nine-year-old daughter and are expecting their second child. When they learn that it will not be born healthy, they are at first optimistic that they will be able to meet this challenge. But the closer it gets to the due date, the more Astrid begins to worry about the future of her unborn child as well as that of her career. After many discussions and arguments Astrid realises that the decision that will affect all their lives must be made by her alone.

“The women before us have fought hard for their right to decide over their own bodies. A great value. But along with the new medical advances this progress can also confront us with unforeseeable decisions. We need to make sure that what happens is not only what is technically possible, but what we really want.” (Anne Zohra Berrached)
