Ruth cares for her mother Hilde who is suffering from dementia. Both women are broke because the care devours every last cent. Only the approval of the ´level of care 2‘ can still save the two women. But when the case manager from the medical advisory service comes by to evaluate Hilde’s health condition, suddenly the old lady seems not to be sick anymore. Rather Hilde presents herself as a charming, entertaining person with good memory. The new Level of Care is in danger, Ruth is more and more under pressure until she loses her self-control…and with that she degrades not only her mother but rather herself.
