This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

The emotive story of a young woman who has to make the toughest of decisions.

This harrowing and emotionally-taut German drama – the second film from talented director Anna Zohra Berrached – details the terrible decision pregnant television comedienne Astrid (the excellent Julia Jentsch) has to make when she must choose whether or not to have a late abortion when she finds out her unborn son has Down’s syndrome and a serious heart defect. Jentsch delivers a raw and moving performance as she struggles to make her decision, with added pressure that her celebrity implies that her ordeal is considered public property.
