Their son has grown up, moved out, and needs them no more. Kjeld and Vibeke face the crisis by moving to the flat where they used to live as a young childless couple. They begin to attempt to recapture their youth, and purchasing original furniture is far from the end of it. An unconventional and dramatic exploration of how a thirty-year-long marriage may be unsettled by fulfilling the dream of return to youth, spiced up by Nordic humor and a pinch of surrealism.
