In the Jaws of Life (1984)
Movie InfoIn this romantic drama, two parallel stories about a pair of professional, middle-aged women looking for romance with different degrees of motivation eventually converge at the end -- the twist is that one of the women is fictional. Dunja is a filmmaker writing a television series called "Stephie Cvek in the Jaws of Life" -- about an office clerk and her romantic problems.
