Adam and his wife goes to their annual swingers-trip to spice up their middle class life, but meeting the young Patricia, makes up for some problems, since love and jealousy is not allowed in the swingers-club.
Yes, there's black humor, but above all there are real emotions pictured, a broken family whose members can't cope with the actual situation after the tragic death of one of theirs. Mia Lyhne is hardly a beginner, but her acting was a discovery for me in this film. Lyhne's eyes and her face speak more than words and without her participation in this film, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it so much. The film is not long, but it is full packed with real feelings, real heartaches, real sorrow. Within an hour or so, I had made friends with the main protagonists and while more than once I did not understand the choices they made, it was more than enjoyable to observe how they get out of a sad loop and get a grip on their life. Kudoz to the young film director and congrats to Mia Lyhne! Having said that, I must stress that all the other actors play real, strong, memorable characters. I won't forget this piece in a long time.
