1 show for this event

Bliss tells the love story of two sex-workers who meet in a Berlin brothel. When Sasha, a 42-year-old lady with a son and a conservative ex-husband, sees 25-year-old Maria, an unconventional, queer Italian lady who is looking for a job, walk in, she is immediately attracted. In a work environment where each woman decides on her own body, the two girls begin an intense love affair that will be put to the test when they try to expose themselves to the outside world. The film explores the world of sex, the female body and relationships through the story of two charismatic and determined women and their journey of liberation and self-determination.
