The story of Ellen and her friends, all in their late thirties/early forties, and their more or less self-inflicted complicated love life and longing for romantic redemption.

The story covers of three years of love-related highs and lows for the group of friends told through eight chapters, each of them set at a party: a New Year’s Eve, a housewarming, a Midsummer’s Eve, a wedding, a surprise party, a naming ceremony, an anniversary and a round birthday.

It is an ensemble story about a group of people who struggle with the conception of the perfect relationship and are bound to re-evaluate their take on what true love is.
