A crash course in parenthood, for women who are afraid to look worn out after childbirth and men who can’t multitask

It’s easily the most significant event in the life of a human. Not only are the consequences huge, but to make things even more complicated, men and women experience it in completely different ways. Yes, this interactive Arte production is about impending parenthood. Directors Andrès Jarach and Lucia Sanchez take a humorous look at this moment when life turns upside down. In 14 offbeat short films – seven from the girls’ side, seven from the boys’ – they deal with different moments of new parenthood and prepare their fellow humans for what’s to come. How do future fathers prepare for the big day? How does a woman deal with the fear of being really ugly after delivery? Should you buy a 1000 euro pram that will play nursery rhymes to your newborn? Can guys come up with a solution for their blatant lack of talent at multitasking? After each film, the viewer is tested. Which of these four women looks the most pregnant? Hmm, it must be that curvaceous Madonna. Having children isn’t that much of a big deal after all.
