A young couple wants to be pioneers and pursue parenthood on an equal footing. But the social contradictions run right through their relationship: The man turns out to be an eternal Peter Pan and the mother looks for "a place to talk about the unspeakable things" in the parent-child café. But in response to the banal and existential aspects of motherhood, she only finds discourses on mom guilt, momnesia and mental load. As in her award-winning film "Das melancholische Mädchen", Susanne Heinrich's theater debut is full of tenderness and irony about the unease of late capitalist society.
