Astrid loves her job as a stand-up comedian and is completely devoted to her work, while her husband and manager Markus is content to support her. However, when the couple is expecting their second child, their life is thrown off course after a routine exam reveals trisomy 21. The difficult decision they need to make about living with Down syndrome keeps getting more complicated. While they are searching for the right answer, everything is called into question – their relationship, their desire for a child, and a life according to plan. With medical professionals, statistics, and prognoses around her on every side, Astrid realizes that she is ultimately the only one who can make the decision.
