by Iris Kaltenbäck
Newly separated, Lydia throws herself into her job as a midwife, the main objective being to distract herself from her heartbreak. When best friend Salomé suddenly announces she's pregnant, Lydia has one more reason to continue not taking time out for herself. But when a few months later Lydia, carrying her friend’s baby in her arms, runs into her one-night stand Milos, she crosses a line that sees her become entangled in a web of lies. Iris Kaltenbäck's drama is as suspenseful as a thriller and hits at the very epicentre of broken hearts.
