Tragicomic feature debut portrays the current generation of people in their thirties waking up to the fact that they are just fiddling around. Three friends realise that the time has come to take life seriously. The day after her thirtieth birthday, Kaat trades the comforts of living with her yuppie boyfriend Max for the shabby upstairs flat of Sacha. Kaat appears to be pregnant, but does not know who the father is: Max or Isa's boyfriend. Her odd behaviour is noticed by both Sacha and Isa, but Kaat keeps silent and arranges an abortion. When it turns out that she is not pregnant at all, Kaat tries to straighten things out with Isa, but to no avail, and when she tries to pick up her old life with Max again, his door also remains closed. In the meantime, Sacha is faced with a violent boyfriend and seems to meet with the same fate as her mother.
