I haven’t asked for this

I don’t want to have children. Yet, or perhaps because of that I often end up in discussions about having children. In the film I answer the most common questions I get. My answers have developed to a permanent repertory that plays in my head. That is the voice over in the film while I’m seen walking around at home, at a florist and at a party apparel store when looking for masks. These surroundings form parallels to the private realm, the so called natural and the construction of an identity.
