37 year-old Simone decides to go out alone on New Year's Eve. The next morning, she wakes
up next to a stranger in his car, and a few weeks later she discovers that she's pregnant. By
coincidence, she runs into the stranger again - the handsome Hannes - and is surprised to find
that, contrary to her expectations, he's actually happy about the pregnancy and wants to live
with her.
Could this be the face of happiness?
While Hannes works in a hospital as a nurse in palliative care, tending to the dying with
extraordinary tenderness, Simone renovates their shared, little home. An attractive neighbor
fuels Simone's jealousy and threatens her idyll. The larger Simone's baby belly grows, the
more extensively Hannes' confidence and integrity warm the nest while Simone's doubts
grow - and the more oppresive their little, homemade prison appears.
