Plot summary

A drama about the power of love, the lust for sex, and the need for hope. 

Birgit is stuck in an uneventful life with her husband Lennart and their teenage daughter. When Bertil, once her childhood sweetheart and now a famous TV-host, returns home after 19 years, Birgit sees her big chance to change her life. While Bertil’s arrival raises new hopes for Birgit, it also brings out well-hidden memories and burning secrets in her family. As it turns out, Birgit is not the only one longing for a change.
