    • Synopsis
    • Due to the financial crisis in Greece, Elena decides to move to Frankfurt. She has become pregnant by her Greek boyfriend. In order to abort her child, she needs money which is why she takes a job working as a nanny for Tessa and Jan. Despite a few struggles with 1½ year-old Lotte at first, Elena starts enjoying the time with the little girl and makes friends with Tessa. In a careless moment, she loses Lotte and escapes from her responsibility and her conscience. Out of a powerless feeling, blind with grief and hatred, Tessa follows Elena to Athens. In Greece, she gets pushed to her limits of humanity and sanity. One breath decides on her ability to forgive herself and Elena.
