rated for 0 + years
One morning, relationship therapist Luisa (Lina Beckmann) wakes up to find that she has become two: overnight, she has turned into the old Luisa and the new Anne (Lina Beckmann). On the outside, the two are like twins, but otherwise fundamentally different: Luisa is full of nervous energy, Anne a picture of calm. Soon, Luisa recognizes what opportunities being two people brings: finally, she can run away with her lover Leopold (Benno Fürmann), leaving Anne to take care of husband Richard (Charly Hübner). But Richard finds Anne much nicer than Luisa would like. A very funny illustration of the excessive demands of modern life.
