”Lolette“ is a portrait of a 64 years old woman, who works as a sex worker. Until her mid-forties she led a quite typical life of the avarage middle class. She was married for 25 years and has four children. When the manic depression she suffered from since years got worse, she decided to make a long-term treatment at a Chinese medical doctor. It turned out that she constantntly suppressed her own femininity and sexuality which strongly influenced her mental well-being.
The filmportrait gives a brief insight how she discovered in her mid-fifties her sexual needs and actively decided to become a prostitute.
