In this German TV film Ulrike Krumbiegel plays a 35 year old single mother who works as an estate agent and is desperately looking for 'Mr Right'. She neglects her daughter and is highly indebted. Then she makes the acquaintance of a charming young man, they fall in love with each other and things seem to change. But at that moment her doctor tells her that she suffers from breast cancer. The way she tries to hide her disease and partly changes her character during the therapy is brilliantly portrayed by Ulrike Krumbiegel, who was given the German TV Award as best actress for this part. This award was well-deserved because she shows very subtly the somewhat helpless girl under the mask of the successful power woman that is step by step revealed because of the weakening effect of the chemotherapy. The scenes in which she is obviously marked by her disease but is still trying to keep her normal life going are the strongest moments of the film. Besides, it never becomes sentimental, which is another reason why I would recommend it.
