A film by Christine Repond. Starts March 14th at the fsk. In German.
Amidst the preparations for her 35th wedding anniversary, Meredith is surprised by the discovery that she is HIV-positive. Only her husband André comes into question as the carrier.
Shaken, Meredith finds out that he has been unfaithful to her with prostitutes. She confronts André with the diagnosis and throws him out of the house. Meredith, however, who has always built her life entirely around caring for her family, can hardly bear being alone. Following an intense fight, she finally consents to André’s return. He in the meantime knows that he is also HIV-positive. They decide to deal with the condemnations and the illness together.
The closer the anniversary celebration looms, the more fragile this marriage to be celebrated appears to be. The deep connection they once had with one another only flashes through in rare moments. Brave, enraged and hopeful, Meredith senses that there can only be a future together when she can forgive André unconditionally. But how much injury can love withstand?
