"24 weeks" is a story of Astrid, a stage comedian, who learns, while in the sixth month of pregnancy, that her baby will be born seriously ill. Together with her husband Marcus they have to make a choice and decide whether they will be able to cope with a disability. Astrid, usually strong and ever assertive, feels lost and unable to continue to do her job where good humor and wittiness are the basic pre-requisites. As the mother, she is the one to make the decision, which - regardless of her choice - will transform her life altogether.
