Successful in her profession, disappointed in love: the successful fashion designer Petra von Kant is disillusioned after the end of her marriage and, despite her fortune, has little joy in her life. Her unloved daughter lives in a boarding school, her mother mainly contacts her when she needs money, her friendships are of a superficial nature and all her work is taken away from her by her personal assistant Marlene.

But then Karin enters her life: A young, attractive and life-hungry woman who wants to gain a foothold in the modeling industry. Petra von Kant is blown away - and decides to support her on her way. She takes Karin in, pays for her fashion school and falls in love with her - and yet has to realize that she still has a long way to go before she can own everything she desires.

There will be a public dress rehearsal on 9/21/22 at 8pm.
