When successful estate agent Carla (Christiane Hörbinger) is retiring she suddenly realises, that she is alone. Her husband (Friedrich von Thun) divorced her years ago, her daughter (Susanna Simon) stays away. Carla turns to drink. It starts with a glass of wine to find solace and leads to a bottle of cognac. Christiane Hörbinger, the highlight in this sensitively told story, is a very convincing alcoholic.
