    Brief synopsis

    Petra has been an acrobat for 15 years now. At the age of 21, she gave up her initial occupation as a doctor's assistant and, against her parents' will, attended a school for artists. Today, Petra knows that it is always right to decide for what fulfils you instead of choosing, out of fear, what is supposed to be the safe way – even if this means the loss of some comforts in life and a violation of the norm. The self-confidence that Petra gains by overcoming her fear at work has positive effects on her everyday life. She has learned to concentrate on the moment and to have a light-hearted look at the future.
