Katja (43) and Isabella (37) decide to beget a child. Like many lesbian couples in Germany they have to find out that the road to a common child is much harder than expected: Most of the sperm banks and fertility clinics do not offer treatment for homosexual couples because of legal purposes. After finally finding a doctor who is willing to offer very expensive inseminations for lesbian women, the fertilization does not work for months. Katja wants to quit the treatment while Isa suffers more and more because of the failures and the bad financial situation they are getting in. However Isa can not give up and finds a trader who sells utilities with which one can inseminate oneself at home...
