Maria is a successful business executive, struggling to fulfill her greatest wish of all: to bring a child into the world. After suffering yet another miscarriage, a doctor informs Maria that she¹s too old to carry a child and her whole world comes crashing down. Devastated and unable to accept her fate, Marias sets out on a desperate and perilous quest to realize her dream of motherhood.
Morgenthaler challenges the audience’s perceptions of vulnerability, power and emotional disturbance by exploring the soul of a very damaged character who still may manage to achieve her dreams. Uncompromising to the highest degree, he populates the world with losers, con-men and violent criminals whose nihilism correlates perfectly with the dead-eyed quest of our lead.
