When she no longer sees a way out, Olivia (Eva Löbau) hides in the wardrobe. She suffers from a full-blown inferiority complex, which her therapist believes is the reason she goes for such chauvinist men as her husband Klaus (Devid Striesow). Olivia puts the blame on her domineering mother Kora (Christine Schorn). When Kora wakes up from a two-year coma, Olivia must not only deal with her, but also with the dubious pensioner Rudi (Friedrich von Thun), Kora’s lover from hospital. A quirky tragicomedy about the grotesqueness of everyday life.
