Synopsis

The “Women as Lovers” are Sabine and Paula, two women bound by nothing but their pursuit for happiness. Paula (17) lives in the countryside while Sabine (33) is a girl from the city. They both dream and talk about finding happiness, a comfortable job and a good man. They realise that their task will be as hard as their current jobs. Sabine works as a hostess at the International Trade Fair, where she uses her body as a tool. Paula wants to become a famous actress one day and tries very hard to achieve this. Sabine subordinates her feelings and goes after Michael (33), a businessman with an ambitious career. They get married in the end and have kids. With Paula, reality and dreams become confused. Paula gets pregnant by accident from Eric (19), a very handsome no-hoper from her village. Paula gets it all wrong, while Sabine gets it right.
