Although the spouses can’t find the harmony in their intimate relations any more: therefore, they both have an affair outside. One day, having uncovered all these secrets to each other, they decide to go a constructive way: to make their marriage ‘open’ instead of a trivial divorce. Now Alan and Joy’s extramarital affairs are happily legitimated, and the spouses open up new horizons of intimate life… until at some point everything becomes too complicated and the fragile consensus that they’ve been achieved starts fading rapidly.
