Thomas and Annette Winterhoff are a modern patchwork family - both having a child of the first marriage. The birth of a common child is about to make their lives just perfect. And even though Annette's pregnancy is believed to be high-risky, they are both taken by complete surprise when their unborn child is diagnosed with trisomy 18. Thomas, a doctor himself, is soon sure he doesn't want the baby, also because he doesn't want to harm his 10-year-old daughter Eva from the certain loss of the so long wished-for sister. Annette, however, still wants her baby, which she has already named in the 21st week of pregnancy, whose room she has already decorated in her mind and which at the moment feels good and right. The young family sees itself face to face to an emotional real test. There is no one who could advice Annette or Thomas on what is best for them and their family, whether a short life is a life worth living, nor how the family is going to deal with each one of the alternatives. A difficult decision process gets started, on which end certainly one thing has evolved: a family! - IMDb
