For Maria, nothing is certain. Her life is a chain of accidents. Friendship passes her by, and she's unimpressed by the devoted Ronny and his endless proposals of marriage. Maria lives in a world of her own - yet not of her own making. Stumbling through university, work, marriage and motherhood, she finds it hard to see what all the fuss is about.

She is a young woman unable to control the direction of her life. Will it end, as it began, by accident? Or will something intervene to save the accidental woman from herself?
