After twenty years of a harmonious life in an open marriage, two middle-aged workaholics, cultural editor Hanna and architect Simon, take another bite out of life. Without telling each other, they both fall in love and enter into a relationship with the charismatic Adam. Their random, secret, and unexpected common acquaintance helps them to discover in themselves sexual freedom without doing harm to each other. The film breaks down some relationship clichés and looks at the heroes-at first glance a seemingly heterosexual couple- in unusual situations where they gradually realize their own identities. This layered story about a love triangle is an intimate delight from the director of the film, Run Lola Run.
