A renowned music critic Georg loses his job. At home, his younger wife constantly pressurizes him as they have been trying for a baby for years now. When she puts his masculinity into question, Georg is unable to admit defeat. When will this disastrous avalanche end? Should he expect worse? A dark comedy which makes the audience laugh at one moment and raise a cry of dismay the next. A humorous and charming story about a man whose world falls apart. On the one hand, this film is a portrait of Austrian townies, and on the other, a story of the crisis of journalism, with the qualities of both a dramedy and of the cinema of vengeance.
