33-year-old Maria is young, attractive and self-determined, she lives her life entirely according to her own ideas. Extensive partying, drugs and numerous love affairs are a matter of course for her. Other women of her generation, the so-called 30somethings, have meanwhile gotten serious, tied themselves down and even brought children into the world. She has flirted with the father of one of these children, for whom she sometimes babysits. She learns from a pregnant friend that she hasn’t been chosen to be the child’s godmother. 

By continuing to hold on to her freedoms, Maria slowly loses touch with her closest friends and even snubs would-be lovers. She eventually is faced with the realization that her promiscuity, her penchant for intoxication and a raucous nightlife can’t really resolve the inner emptiness that begins to grow inside her. Not because she gives in to the exuberant feeling of life, but because she shies away from taking responsibility.
