Cast & Crew
What is an attractive, thirty-something woman, who is fed up with dating but desperate to have a child, to do? Dora 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. But listening to her biological clock, Dora decides to get pregnant and plans to bring up her child all by herself. Pursuing her aim, she turns to Internet dating, a sperm bank, and even picks up the handsome counter boy at the local Turkish fast food joint. Her life is made miserable by Tamas, the new member of the theatre who plays the male lead in "Dangerous Liaisons," which Dora has adapted for the stage. Tamas is the embodiment of everything Dora can't stand in men: cocky, ruthless, a charming but insufferable womanizer. Dora's profound dilemma is how to make peace with a past littered with failed relationships and yet be open to future opportunities to find a partner.
