Splitting Up Together
Line and Martin have it all. Good jobs, beautiful kids, great friends, a nice house, a garden and a cat that only comes home to take a shit. But their love is worn out, the midlife crisis knocks on their door and their sex life is already dead and buried. So Line decides that she wants a divorce whilst they can still stand each other’s company. They put their house on the market only to realize that there are NO buyers, so the ex-couple decide to live together in the house while it is for sale. But that´s easier said than done! Line, who feels that she has been missing out on so much in her life, soon starts living a teenage kind of lifestyle including Tinder and hangovers – whilst Martin experiences a massive identity crisis. But the crisis makes him find not only himself – but also new meaning and a woman, who actually loves him. Meanwhile Line realizes that the grass might not be that much greener on the other side and maybe she isn’t really done with Martin after all?
Their best friends, Rune and Pernille, try very hard to make Martin and Line’s love blossom again, whilst Line’s single sister, Maja, looses all hope of meeting the one and only and gets inseminated in order to make her very own family. But then the love of her life appears…
“Splitting up together” is an edgy and loving portrait of a generation – in the middle of their lives – who suddenly have to acknowledge and accept that family comes in many shapes and forms.
