Erika and Franziska haven't seen each other for 4 years. 10 years earlier they both felt that they had the same chances in life: both were young, attractive and imaginative. They overlooked what would, right from the outset, separate them: their very different emotional make-up, their different character.
Erika is the practical one. She says, "I will earn our daily bread. You go and find out what you might be interested in doing with your life." What she doesn't say is her expectation "...and then you can earn the money and I can go and find out what I want to do with my life."
Franziska is all too happy to do this. She changes her aims easily and often, and never reaches her goal. Maybe because she doesn't have one. Both are dissatisfied. Erika feels used. Franziska is annoyed that Erika allows herself to be used. Erika's passion is that she takes on more than she can handle, and then is surprised when no one else thinks of taking out the garbage. In a long nighttime discussion the friends try to clear up these problems - not without some glimmer of hope.

In her two-person play Ula Stöckl uses beautiful pictures, which are masterfully arranged, to impart important knowledge and insights as to why human relations succeed and fail. The kitchen becomes a battleground and the narrow bath a confessional. A biting, instructional film about that complicated thing called friendship.

02: If one views the 2 women characters as one and the same person, then the film becomes clearly about the importance of understanding oneself, identifying one's own contradictions, finding out where one is and what demands are required of one.
