Short Summary (English)

The nurses and friends Anna and Annette grow desperate over men and love. At the hospital, Anna has fallen in love with Markus, whom she lovingly calls "moose", but they only meet twice a year, when Markus has time for her. In the meantime, she keeps afloat with flights of fancy. Meanwhile, Annette clings to the painter Ludwig who cannot stand such a close relationship. Through Annette and Ludwig, Anna meets an attractive married man but her high spirits do not last long. Annette commits suicide because of her growing desparation. Her death sends Anna into a deep emotional crisis.

Short Summary (Other Languages)

Anna e Anette, due infermiere, sono molto amiche. Entrambi hanno problemi di cuore. In clinica Anna ha conosciuto Markus, soprannominato "alce", ma il ragazzo non ha mai tempo per lei e Anna, aspettando il prossimo appuntamento, non fa che sognare di lui. Anette, innamorata del pittore Ludwig, lo assilla, ma lui non sopporta la troppa vicinanza. (Italienisch)
