Journalist Ina Borrmann chronicles her own infertility treatment and in the process unsparingly documents what she and her partner experience. In her late 30s, Borrmann and her new partner suddenly develop a a desire to have children. When initial attempts to naturally conceive are unsuccessful, the couple turns to a doctor who specializes in in vitro fertilization. "I tried to devote myself to a matter that otherwise remains hidden. In the media, this topic is on everyone's lips, but the hard psychological torture, this ordeal, the hormone injection , the swollen abdomen, these ups and downs, the strain on the relationship, and an unclear outcome, these are all things that are not discussed most seen every week."
