Once Lydia was the innocent girl - a daughter of a painter - that young journalist Arvid fell in love with out in the archipelago. Or did he? Did he fall in love with the idea of what love is supposed to be? In its clearest, most untainted form. The beauty of love, the match made in heaven, the love at first sight. Arvid feels that he wants to make an importance in the world and make a clear break from his social background. His ambition stands in the way of marriage and the love slips away. A decade has past since they first set eyes on each other. Now both are married. Yet not with each other. They meet again and end up having an affair. An affair that forces the couple to reflect upon the time passed, how different they both have become and how far away from each other they actually are. The consequences of their affair are unforeseeable. In the hands of Lone Scherfig one of the most celebrated stories of Swedish literature have become a heartbreaking, humorous and erotic tale about the complexity of love set in the beautiful setting of turn-of-the-century Stockholm.

Meet Nidhi- Traces of innocence and a whole lot of sweetness, still in the throes of first love, full of dreams. Unlike the cynical Anu and the practical Tanisha, she makes you want to be sixteen again, experience all that was good with those days. Meet Ashwin- An introverted and completely lacking in confidence.

It makes you laugh even as it tells you disquieting truths about your kids. It sucks you into their deep, dark world of sassy, saucy, sexy, highly informed, intelligent, aggressive, go getter kids with hearts that are still tender and looking for love and meaning. And you will never see your kids the same way ever again.
