Am Himmel der Tag

// Feature, 2012 // Lara doesn’t know what she wants. At twenty-five, she’s about to finish her degree in architecture, but it doesn’t interest her anymore. She spends her nights going out late with her friend Nora, but hasn’t enjoyed that for a while either. She wants to change her life, but she doesn’t know how. After a wild night out dancing, Lara finds herself pregnant. Confused and hesitant at first, she throws herself into the adventure: becoming a mother. But the experience takes a painful turn. Lara miscarries in her sixth month. Fearing the loss of her newfound feeling of purpose, Lara continues to carry the baby and acts as if she is still pregnant...
