The day comes for them to decide if letting go is the biggest proof of love.

Among the film’s strengths are not the big reveals or the big confrontations, but rather the extremely meticulous exploration of what the characters want, of what keeps them together, and of what may persuade them to favour a separation.
A remarkable debut - wise, compassionate', Surprising powerful, minutely observed three-part study of a loving marriage threatened by socially taboo and mutually painful revelations.
