Woman Driving, Man Sleeping
The dentist Sue and the philosophy professor Anton have been leading a seemingly intact life, juggling careers and a family with four children. Until one day, however, when their son 18-year-old-son Thomas has a breakdown. Thomas’ situation threatens the stability of the family. While the other almost grown-up children continue with their own lives, Sue and Anton are suddenly left to themselves. Sue recognizes that she has fallen in love with another man, and Anton’s current mistress is pregnant with his child. When Thomas suddenly dies, Sue realizes that she must do something to change her life. Faced with the decision of ending or revitalizing her relationship to Anton, she understands that sometimes it can be quite easy to be happy.
