Inhalt

Until Death Do Us Part
Jens and Sonja both are in their early twenties when they meet each other. Precipitously, they marry without being ready for such a commitment. Problems begin to stack up after their first child is born. Jens, whose income as a construction worker is sufficient for the small family, wants Sonja to take care of the child full time, partly because Jens himself missed the care of his parents in his childhood. But Sonja has a different idea of her life. Without letting Jens know, she finishes a skilled worker′s training.

When Jens finds out about Sonja′s secret; he cannot control his emotions and hits her. Sonja in return does not warn Jens when he drinks from a bottle of water that is filled with detergent although she knows about it. Only now, after this incident, both Sonja and Jens come to their senses and decide to give their marriage a second chance.
