As a taxi driver, Elfi (Brigitte Swoboda) has to make her way in a male dominated world. That she is not a woman to be reckoned with is especially apparent to the unpleasant, stingy passengers, whose suitcases she sometimes throws out onto the street. But Elfi faces another challenge: she is expecting a child from the waiter Poidl (Lukas Resetarits), who, after initial shock, already sees himself as the proud "head of the family." At first she considers an abortion, but finally she decides to have the child - and that's where the problems begin ... MIT LEIB UND SEELE is a reaction to the enactment of the legalization of abortion in the mid-1970s and focuses on the self-determination of women in the form of an extremely sympathetic protagonist - in all areas of life.
