Die Niere

The Kidney

Michael Kreihsl

 A routine check-up reveals that the Pilate trainer Kathrin is suffering from kidney disease and needs a transplant. Her husband Arnold is a successful architect and afraid of donating one of his kidneys. Götz, a friend of the couple's, would undergo the operation immediately if it means saving Kathrins's life – even though this causes problems with his partner Diana. Confronted by issues of life and death, the fragility of the relationships between the couples and each other is laid bare. Eventually, the question can no longer be avoided: what is true love?
