FÜR ELISE

by Wolfgang Dinslage

synopsis

Elise is a 15-year-old girl who, following her father’s accidental death, lives with her mother Betty. The latter is an intensive care nurse and, true to the saying ‘the cobbler’s children always go barefoot’, Betty helps to save the lives of others but does not have her life or that of her daughter under control. In her desperate search for a new husband and father, Betty throws herself into a drastic series of parties and one-night stands, drowning her helplessness in alcohol.
