Astrid is a comedian who makes people laugh for a living; her husband Markus is her manager and the two of them work well together. They have a nine-year-old daughter and are expecting their second child. When they learn that their child will not be born healthy, they are optimistic at first that they will be able to rise to the challenge – despite having no idea what awaits them. But the closer it gets to the due date, the more Astrid begins to worry about the future of her unborn child and that of her family and career. After many discussions and arguments, Astrid realizes that she alone must take the decision that will affect all of their lives. What complicates matters further is her very public media status as a successful entertainer.
