Storyline

Twenty-two-year-old Karo (Claudia Eisinger) decides that it is high time for a therapy. The emotional and sometimes selfish young woman has lost her beloved job, stressing with her mother Luzy (Katja Riemann) and is generally in a pretty deep hole. As she deals with the question of what to do with her life now, she overcomes the sheer fear. Her therapist Anette (Maren Kroymann) advises to rest, but this is something with which she absolutely can not serve. Instead, she soon returns to full throttle, because there is a lot that needs to be fixed. Precisely because she now tries to do everything right, to set the course again in a rush, she does everything wrong - and her friend Philipp (Christoph Letkowski) with her conclusion. This is followed by panic attacks and a little later a real depression .

Flawed individual

But who isn't right? Then again, if you are so cynical that you start yapping away at a kid that got lost in a supermarket ... well I guess that's very specific, but you catch the drift. The central performance is really gripping, especially because it's walking a very fine and thin line. It's tough to portray someone we should somehow be interested without her being too likable.

At parts even very annoying. But it works and it does so even though it may not be with ease. The scene I mentioned in the supermarket is flawed, but it's necessary. Other episodes may feel a bit too long, but they add to the overall continuity. And while it's decent enough, it's up to the viewer if they like it or not ...
