A really realistic story(mostly), shot very nice. It is true that mentally and physically disabled people handle their sexuality more freely, that they are sometimes being misused by perverts or even fall in love with "normal" people and also the jealousy of the mother towards the daughter. So shocking that it hurts and also well played!
Die Problematik sexueller Selbstbestimmung am Beispiel der heranwachsenden, geistig behinderten Nora wird auf interessante Weise näher gebracht. Wenn auch rechtliche Fragen nicht beantwortet wurden, sind hier moralische Aspekte vordergründig: Was können Eltern einer volljährigen Tochter verbieten?
