Plot summary

Darling is a dark society comedy, a tragic and comic tale of the young obnoxious upper class, ordinary folks and the bitter conditions of life in Stockholm of the 2000’s. Beautiful and self-absorbed Eva engages in a banal infidelity affair that becomes the starting point of a slow but relentless descent down to the life of ordinary people and a surprising, but doomed friendship.
