The Film is based on the bestselling autobiography „Noch einmal lieben“ by Andrea Sixt.
When young fashion designer Andrea (Marie Zielcke) is diagnosed with fatal breast cancer, she is overwhelmed by fear. Although one of her breasts is removed, the doctors think she hasn‘t got much chance to survive the cancer in the long run. Her partner is unable to deal with this and their relationship falls apart. However, with the support of her friend Günes (Jasmin Tabatabai) Andrea begins to accept her fate as a chance for new beginnings and decides to overcome the cancer. She refuses chemotherapy against her doctor’s advice, in search of alternative therapies. Fighting her fear of death, she also bravely faces the ever present sensation of not being whole anymore, feeling less feminine, and the worry of being less attractive to men.
