A couple’s joy at expecting their second child turns to anguish in this hard-hitting drama. We first meet Astrid on the set of her stand-up comedy show where she is announcing her pregnancy to the studio audience. She and her partner Kurt are confident that they can handle anything, but their next appointment at the antenatal clinic reveals a ninety-eight-percent chance that their child has Down syndrome. Later they learn that the baby will also require multiple surgeries for a heart condition. At six months pregnant, Astrid must choose whether to go ahead or have a late-term abortion. This film looks unflinchingly at her moral dilemma, offering a powerful portrait of a women confronted with a terrible decision.
