A blisteringly hot summer day. Psychotherapist Ina notices something is wrong with her. But she doesn't have time to worry about it: Patients are waiting at the practice, her daughter is threatening to move in with her father, her boyfriend wants to emigrate to Finland, and her self-centered mother is celebrating her 70th birthday. Ina wants to please everyone. But then everything changes.

BEST SCREENPLAY @ 39th Int'l Film Fest Munich

'Pointed, full of quiet suspense, never losing its fine line and lightness' (Filmfest München)

'Anne Ratte-Polle in brilliant top form' (Festival des deutschen Films)

'With an outstanding Anne Ratte-Polle' '...magnificently authentic' (

'Fine and refined' (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

'The film is very funny... very truthful. The film has a beautiful tragedy. Definitely go in. Great film!' (BR KINOKINO)

'Katharina Woll handles her delightful debut feature film with the grace and sensitivity of a much more experienced filmmaker' 'excellent feature... What Woll does next should be worth the wait.' (

'One recognizes oneself and others perfectly in the only slightly overdrawn characters.' (

'intensely embodied psychologist.... sharp-tongued tragicomedy' (Tagesspiegel)

'A sophisticated character mesh of conflicting wants & needs.... The film's dialogue is sharp, believable, and goes to the heart of relationship conversations. That's what makes them so painful - and so entertaining.' (Jury Filmfest München - Almila Bagriacik, Sönke Wortmann, Ingo Fliess)

'This cleverly observed comedy shows how social constraints and contradictory expectations constrict our lives. Katharina Woll tells the story with a fine sense for the delicate pitfalls of interpersonal relationships'. (CINEMA)
