Filmfest 2018

German Age Rating

What do you do with a ticking time bomb? And what if you yourself are the time bomb? Because you're a woman in her early 30s who is suddenly single again. Or who can no longer see the forest for the trees because there are too many male genitalia. Or who has by mistake given the word "love" the wrong definition over all the years. Or because, far and wide, no male genitalia are in sight that could be the right ones to start a family. One must fall in love, reproduce, have a career, and live one's life, especially in beautiful Munich. Confused emotions; the search for meaning; pressure; don't get left behind; search, with ovaries quivering, for would-be fathers.
