Logline

This film is shown as part of program 4.

The dress is far too elaborate and the toilet stall far too small for the bride to fit into. The ballroom is packed, the wine is flowing, and the mood is frighteningly good. But something is threatening to burst: The pregnant belly of deaf Betti? The patience of her stepfather? Or the wine-filled bladder of his overwrought ex-wife?



  • Duration: 20 Min.
