rated for 0 + years
With a certain cheerfulness, Sandra Nettelbeck tells a story of crises of purpose and affairs of the heart. As a sought-after psychotherapist with two teenage daughters – along with a persistent ex-wife (Barbara Auer), who is at the same time his best friend, a melancholy dog he's only just bought and a catalogue of odd patients – Max (August Zirner) really doesn't need a new challenge. But along comes Sophie, gambling addict and sound effects specialist who is always late for her appointments, with a divorced boyfriend and a father who rejects her - and Max’ familiar little world is turned on its head.
