Trapped in the world of the “young creative class” in Berlin, where life is your career, love is sexual convenience, and happiness measured by degrees of cynical detachment, Marianne, a thirty-something photographer, begins to look at things differently after discovering that she is pregnant. Soon a hidden world of darkness and disorder, mistrust and lies breaks into the open. Told as a web of interlocking anecdotes, Headshots charts the course from fragile love to betrayal, from complicity to self-annihilation, and back through twists that are comical, bitter, ridiculous, and poignant, in a contemporary Berlin that has never been shown like this before.
