Filmfest 2014

German Age Rating

The story of two married women who fall in love with one another and are faced with deciding whether to accept their strong emotions for one another or to repress them for the sake of their families.
Marie's marriage with Bernd was not an unhappy one. The two architects have a successful firm, two teenage children and were finally about to build their own dream home. Ayla is expecting a baby, her first, from her husband, Dom, who is Marie's former boyfriend. When Marie meets Ayla, she falls head over heels in love with her. Both women are so surprised by their attraction to each other that they are utterly overwhelmed by feelings of insecurity and anxiety. Marie, especially, undergoes an identity crisis. Was her entire life up until now a lie? Can she trust her feelings for Ayla? Ayla can no longer deny hers...
