Short Summary (English)

Monika and Johannes are married. With increasing frequency, their son Manni becomes the focus of their arguments. Since the two cannot agree to a compromise, they decide to break up. The ten-year-old Manni is supposed to spend four weeks with Monika followed by four weeks with Johannes on an alternating basis. They want to prove to each other who has the better parenting skills. The plan fails, however, because Manni is very good at playing his parents off against each other. When Monika and Johannes finally see through their son’s game, they realize that their way of life does not lead to better parenting and they conclude that good parenting can only be achieved if they work together.

Short Summary (German)

In der Ehe von Monika und Johannes haben die Auseinandersetzungen ein unerträgliches Maß erreicht. Anlaß ist zumeist der zehnjährige Sohn Manni, Ursache ihre unterschiedlichen Erziehungsauffassungen. Man beschließt die Trennung, doch da keiner auf das Kind verzichten will, soll Manni im Wechsel von vier Wochen mal beim Vater, mal bei der Mutter leben. so kann sich auch erweisen, wer der bessere Erzieher ist, meinen sie. Der Versuch gerät zum Fiasko, denn der pfiffige Junge nutzt die Wettbewerbssituation der Eltern aus und erzwingt so die Erfüllung all seiner Wünsche. Das fehlgeschlagene Experiment bringt Monika und Johannes zur Erkenntnis, daß nur gemeinsames, vernünftiges Handeln zu einem glücklichen Familienleben führen kann.

Short Summary (Other Languages)

I diverbi fra i coniugi Monika e Johannes hanno raggiunto un livello insopportabile e i due, in disaccordo soprattutto sull'educazione del figlio Manni, di dieci anni, si separano, ma non volendo rinunciare al figlio, il bambino trascorrerà di volta in volta quattro settimane dal padre e quattro dalla madre. In questo modo si capirà anche chi dei due genitori sia il miglior educatore. L'astuto Manni sfrutta la concorrenza fra i due genitori per farsi esaudire ogni desiderio. Il fallito esperimento farà capire a Monika e Johannes che solo impegnandosi ragionevolmente insieme si può costruire una felice vita famigliare. (Italienisch)
