What is happiness in a relationship? How can a couple stay in love and inspire one another after years of being together? During their housewarming party, as his girlfriend Marie rambles on about their 10 years together and the baby they’re expecting, screenwriter Mads wonders how he’s ended up in a “perfect life” with the “perfect girl,” a far cry from what he originally wanted. Forced to choose by the more mature Marie, Mads leaves, so that he can search for the woman of his dreams. Along the way, he decides to pour his confusion, and his dating life, into his screenplay.
