Wenn es Liebe ist

a die film gmbh production for ZDF

DORIS and SIMON are a happy couple. They have been for 35 years. Whilst others have fought their way through marital crises or dragged one another through the divorce courts, Doris and Simon have a joint wood burner business and two headstrong children to their name. They have shared their whole lives with each other, and spent so much time together, that they already have a retirement plan: to have even more time for one another. Hand the business over to the son and let the daughter sort out her own marriage problems. After all, the children are grown up now. Actually, everything is perfect. Until one day, the adventurer JOHANNES drives into the small town with his caravan—and Doris realizes that it is possible to love two men at the same time. Johannes is a traveler, liberal-minded, and, therefore, exactly the kind of man Doris sometimes misses a bit in Simon. Simon is reliable and loving; he is the man you can talk to about anything. Absolutely anything. Even about an affair that Doris doesn't even try to hide from her husband Simon. Any other man would explode with fury. Not Simon! He loves Doris and leaves the decision to her: if she wants to leave, she should leave; if she wants to stay, then she should stay—which is of course what he secretly hopes for! Now Doris has to find out for herself where this journey is leading: to Peru with Johannes or to staying in her idyllic home life with Simon. With everything that Simon knows and everything he loves. And that also includes Doris, who—for the first time in her life—has to make a decision without him.
