    • Synopsis
    • What is an attractive, thirtysomething woman to do who is fed up with dating but is desperate to have a child? This dilemma is certainly shared by many women from Moscow to New York. Dóra (Judit Schell) works as a dramaturge at a Budapest theatre. She breaks up with her fiancé when she finds out he has a wife and a kid. Frustrated and disappointed, she decides to have nothing to do with men and lead a meaningful life alone. Listening to her biological clock, Dóra decides to get pregnant and bring up her child all by herself. Pursuing her aim, she turns to Internet dating, sperm bank, even picks up the handsome counter boy at the local Turkish fast food joint. Her life is made miserable by Tamás (Sándor Csányi), the new member of the theatre who plays the male lead in Dangerous Liaisons that Dóra has adapted to the stage. Tamás is the embodiment of everything Dóra can’t stand in men: cocky, ruthless, a charming but insufferable womanizer. Dóra’s profound dilemma is how to make peace with her past littered with failed relationships and yet be open to future opportunities to find a partner. The film portrays Dóra and her best friend, Zsófi (Kata Dobó), a leading actress also in her early 30s, as they try to cope with their difficulties with the opposite sex in a fast-paced, funny story with serious overtones.
