A BUN IN THE OVEN
Filmfest 2017

German Age Rating

There is one thing that Nicole, who is soon turning fifty, would have loved to be spared: to learn the symptoms that have been ruining her life are not those of a latent menopause, but those of a real pregnancy! What a drag. And being close to three months pregnant, the latest time in France to get an abortion, does not make it any easier. A race against time begins. As the bedrock of an oddball and slightly out of control family, Nicole will first need to deal with the big news, announce it to the others and quickly make a decision. Will they or will they not get an abortion? Not an easy choice. Especially since it's not the first time she's had this dilemma!
