ONE BREATH is the story of two women from different backgrounds but with the same desire: happiness. Elena, young, well-educated and with no perspective in her home-country Greece is trying to pursue a better life, away from her family and country. And Tessa, a thirtysomething mother and successful manager in Germany, married, is torn between happiness as an individual and a mother. These two women meet and their encounter changes both of their lives forever.
