    • Synopsis
    • “She turned my life upside-down, drove me into a corner, pushed me beyond my limits. She taught me about self-renouncement, tenderness and sacrifice in their most extreme forms.
      Why didn’t my mother ever tell me? Why doesn't anyone ever mention this?"
      A Happy Event breaks the taboo of pregnancy through the tragicomic diary of a young woman who becomes a mother.
