Tragicomedy about a woman who is driven to new extremes, when the men she crosses paths with apparently do not take her seriously.
The 54-year-old Liesbeth is an everyday woman with a perfectly ordinary life. But in everything she does she is hampered by men she crosses paths with. When Liesbeth realises this, she decides to change tack: she follows the example of a female bodybuilder and is ready to stand her ground. Fragmented tale that does not shun awkward moments and makes agonizingly clear that a woman’s life in a world made by and for men is no bed of roses.
