What if Sina couldn’t get pregnant? What if Mona never had had children? Would the world be a better place? For sure, says climate activist Eva Lohaus: only a falling birthrate can save the planet. While she struggles with the consequences of her radical vision, the two sisters Sina and Mona struggle with their own life choices. They envy each other from afar, pity each other from up close. Both try to avoid and ignore responsibilities and the pressures from outside expectations. But it is only when they meet Mona’s new neighbour that the reader’s view of motherhood radically changes.
