The only thing missing for happiness in the lives of Alice (Lavinia Wilson) and Niklas (Elyas M’Barek) is a child. After artificial insemination fails, the couple travels to Sardinia on holiday. When a lively Tyrolean family with two children moves into the house next door, the holiday turns into a test of the couple’s relationship. Austria’s submission for an Oscar 2021 is a sensibly told drama about a relationship on the edge, and a life in which the supposedly most natural thing in the world does not avail.
