EN - Dorien has everything to be happy: a successful husband, two adorable children and a booming veterinary practice. One day, everything falls apart. She discovers her mother’s long-running love affair, her husband appears to be very close to a colleague and she has this lump in her breast. She needs someone to talk to but no-one seems to listen. Is this truly the life she dreamt of? Dorien realises it’s time to make some changes. The Best of Dorien B. is a comedy-drama about a woman who rediscovers herself amid the chaos.

NL - Dorien heeft alles om gelukkig te zijn: een succesvolle man, twee schattige kinderen en een dierenartsenpraktijk vol kleine huisdieren. Maar wanneer ze haar ouders betrapt op jarenlang overspel en haar man wel erg close blijkt te zijn met een collega, begint ze te twijfelen. Een telefoontje met slecht nieuws is de druppel. Ze voelt zich verloren, kan bij niemand terecht. Dorien evalueert haar leven, is dit het dan? The Best of Dorien B. is een dramatische komedie over een vrouw die zichzelf tussen alle gekte door herontdekt.
