Almuth and Rita


Due to her dominant nature, freshly-retired lady dentist Almuth (68) never grew any emotional bonds with her family or her social environment. Only when she starts opening up toward her housemaid Rita, she slowly overcomes her detained self and learns to be a better person. An eventful and entertaining story about the friendship of two very different women, about the true value of family, and about giving life a new start
despite of age.
