Aude and Benjamin have been together for six years. Because Aude suffers greatly from not being able to have children, Benjamin decides to carry a child to term. The director tells a touching story that has never been seen in a feature film before. For many years she has been dealing with entrenched ascribed roles and identities. What does it mean to be a father or a mother? What is ethical – what is not? What is normal – what is not? "I want the audience to forget their reference points and prejudices and leave the cinema with the feeling that they have met people who are a little like themselves," says the director.
Director's Biography: Mention-Schaar, born in 1963, is a French producer, screenwriter and director. Her film DER HIMMEL WIRD WARTEN, about two young women are recruited for the Jihad out of love, received great attention.
