What happens when a mother no longer wants to, or is unable to, go on?

Helene, mother of three children, gets up during dinner, goes out onto the balcony and throws herself to her death. The family is in shock. Suddenly everything that previously held them together has gone: love, care, security. Helene’s best friend Sarah, who had both envied and pitied Helene for her family, is dragged into a vortex of grief and chaos. Lola, Helene’s eldest daughter, searches for a way of coping with her emotions, and concentrates on the feeling that is strongest: anger.
Three women: one cannot do what life asks of a mother. The other two have to find a way to fill the void. Their fates intertwine in Mareike Fallwickl’s stirring and clear-sighted novel about what it means to be a woman in today’s society.
