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 realizes 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.
