I look back at my generation and wonder: Is the home the space which makes us a family? How can we keep on desiring the same person over the years, if everything we use has an expiration date? What nourishes love? What nourishes desire? When do we stop being young? Or are we a generation that will never stop being young? A daily drama. A movie built in layers, with humor, music and sex, in order to portray the deepest and most worldly desires of its characters.
