After 15 years together, a separating couple battle over their stylish apartment, revealing the complexities of their relationship and the depth of the rifts between them. Marie and Boris are calling it quits, but can’t resolve the details of the division of their prize asset, the wonderful apartment they share with their young twin daughters and continue living together. Marie is the breadwinner in the relationship, but it was her family's wealth, that allowed the couple to purchase their stylish apartment. On the other hand it was her husband’s renovation work that added significant value to the property! The film avoids taking sides in this absorbing family drama, inviting the audience to see that both parties are right, and both are wrong.
