A wry, irreverent comedy by Belgian director Anke Blondé. An unassuming veterinarian and housewife gets a new attitude when everything in her world falls apart overnight.

Dorien is a suburban veterinarian and mum whose life is turned upside down in short order. She finds out her parents are breaking up; her husband has been hanging out with the colleague he cheated with a year ago; and she has a tumour in her breast. Belgian filmmaker Anke Blondé's first feature is a splendidly observant and funny comedy-drama, powered by a luminous star performance by newcomer Kim Snauwaert.

Europe! Voices of Women director biography: Anke Blondé is a Belgian director whose previous short films, Mister Frits (1998), Buiten Adem (1999), and Dura Lex (2011) all received awards at international film festivals.
