Four couples struggle in parts of Europe on the verge of social and economic change. Between Seville, Tallinn, Dublin, and Thessaloniki, the film offers a close up into the shaken vision of their daily struggles, fights, kids, sex and passion. A movie about the politics of love.
An ultra-realistic documentary equal parts intimate and explicit, these unflinching sequential views of four argumentative couples—their ups and downs, their unions, their uncertain futures together—all entwine to create an impressive allegory for the current state of Europe.
