Project Description

LOVE ALONE CAN’T MAKE A CHILD (DER WUNSCH)

LOVE ALONE CAN’T MAKE A CHILD follows the emotional journey of two women, Maria (37) and Christiane (44), who, like many couples, share a dream of having a child of their own. But physical limitations, medical issues and a discriminatory system that raises legal matters make this a far more challenging undertaking. Filmed over many years with extreme candor, capturing moments both serious and humorous, it is an intimate exploration of the balance of dependency in a relationship under tremendous stress, where the limits of how far they are willing to go to achieve their dream are continually challenged.
