FOUR LITTLE ADULTS
Juulia’s discovery of her husband’s affair detonates like a bomb in their flat. Instead of focusing on the consequences, Juulia invites her husband’s lover over for coffee and cake and proposes an open marriage. The film aims to demonstrate how an open marriage works. Things get complicated when Juulia also finds a lover and when her husband fails to understand her lover’s bisexuality. Is it possible to find happiness in polyamorous relationships? This bittersweet comedy of character raises this question through the characters of four adults bringing novelty into their already near-perfect lives, while the director, in search of understanding for a new kind of love, paints a picture of their intertwining relationships.
