Christina Without (Christina ohne Kaufmann)

Christina Without

Driven by the fantasy of a "ménage a trois", Christina, a woman in her forties, finds herself on the three-piece sofa set of a young harmonious couple. What was envisioned as an adventure mutates into a nightmare of dragging conversation and embarrassing silence.
