Inhalt

Widows

Three women, three lives, three husbands, several loves: the lives of friends Molly, Elisabeth and Maria couldn′t be more different. However, the three come surprisingly close in their most secret desires. They see the solution to their problems in widowhood.

Widows: a black comedy about the dream that every (married) woman dreams somewhere in her innermost self. To be alone, free, unattached, without any responsibilities. And perhaps many a spouse won′t have a gentle awakening....
