Molly, a good-hearted and lovely housewife and mother, has had enough of Erich, her husband's drunken outbursts, outrages. When he cheats her with the stupid model Sandi, she thinks of liberation. Elisabeth lives a dreamlike life as a good-looking lawyer. Unfortunately, Charles her faithful spouse is 25 years older than her. After an encounter with the young musician Vince, she senses that there might be something else as well. Maria, who has always been able to profitably use her erotic charisma is abused by her third husband Konrad only as an exhibition object due to her attractive appearance. She is with him only for financial reasons and frustrated. She longs for respect and recognition. Should she give him up, but according to the marriage contract she is left with nothing. An exciting search for happiness alone begins. All have in common the urgent desire to free themselves. But "divorce is disgusting," says Molly, and that's why they choose widowhood. Devilish plans ripen in their minds, but they are not as easy to implement as they seem. Written by lament See less
