Synopsis

Shocked by the death of a friend, three men try to take their lives in hand. But how far will they go?

A gay man falls under the spell of a young woman. How far will his heart betray him? A happily married man encounters a wonderful french woman at the funeral - and says too much. Should he meet her again? A young man returns after years travelling, searching for that elusive 'something' in his life, and finally finds the woman of his dreams in his own back yard. But will he have to lose his best friend for love?

Three stories intermingle, intertwine and glance off each other to reveal surprising perspectives in this sharp look at the human comedy of love.
