Astrid Lorenz is a popular stand-up comedian who lives a happy life with her manager and boyfriend Markus and their young daughter. Astrid is six months pregnant with their second child and everything seems to be falling into place for the little family. This all changes, however, when the expecting parents are told that the unborn child has Down syndrome and a life-threatening heart condition. Diving headfirst into controversial issues of ethics, sacrifice, mercy and self-actualization, 24 WEEKS is a highly topical drama from director Anne Zohra Berrached.
