EN- Cataract portrays the story of Elisabeth Donkers, a single-minded 38-year-old woman. When she finds out that the fruit company owned by her father-in-law Roger Hendrickx is about to go bankrupt, she convinces her husband (the eternally indecisive Frank), her brother-in-law Paul (a hedonist with few ambitions in life) and her sister-in-law An (a quiet woman who wants a child more than anything else), to take over the company and expand and modernise it. Elisabeth is undoubtedly the most ambitious of the lot, and the more the expansion of the company develops into a personal quest to try and prove herself to her father Karel Donkers (an authoritarian surgeon), the more she starts to irritate the others. Fortunately for her she receives a great deal of support from Ben Van Hemelrijk (the flamboyant owner of the transport company Elisabeth & Co are in business with), but unfortunately her good relationship with Ben is also a source of marital tension. On top of the business problems and the family confrontations, Elisabeth also wrestles with a highly personal problem, one that she initially denies and underestimates: there is something wrong with her eyes. When her sight problems turn out to have family consequences, when her relationship with Frank comes under heavy fire because of complications with Ben, when the pressure on the business becomes nearly unbearable because of her blunders, Elisabeth’s ambition and her craving for self-assurance drive her to make a capital mistake... If and how she recovers from the blow is revealed in the final three episodes.
