Das kleine Vergnügen

A Film by Julia Frick

Synopsis

SHOP OF LITTLE PLEASURES

When faced with the breakdown of her marriage, 50 year old housewife Emma begins work as a store manager in a sexshop. She soon realises the shop is in desperate need of improvement, not only for economic reasons, but also for her own wellbeing. So she transforms it into an erotic boutique for women. Her fledging children and bewildered mother watch in surprise. While looking for her lost orgasm, she has intriguing encounters, and finds female friends and support for the first time, but when her husband wants her back again, she has to decide whether to live life for herself or to sacrifice it again.
