Being Alone Isn’t for Wimps

Frieda, a freelance graphic designer, lives alone. She’s wanted a harmonious relationship for a good while now, but so far it’s never worked out. Now she’s in her mid-forties, her panic is clamouring ever louder. Books, yoga, afternoon tea — all her attempts to appear relaxed and believe in the power of fate are no use. Her best friend, Yvonne, is more pragmatic about the situation. Divorced with two kids, she promptly signs up to ‘HeartMatch’ and fights her way determinedly through even the most dreadful of dates. Frieda resolutely refuses to cavort there as well. She prefers thinking about taking in the cat that shows up on her balcony one day. “You’re definitely too young for a cat,” is Yvonne’s response to her plan.
But faced with difficulties at work, a fierce row with Yvonne, and an embarrassing misunderstanding between her and her best friend, Frieda is on the verge of complete despair. If it weren't for the cat, who shows her the way back to life.
