Photographer Mika and music producer Tesfay prove to be each other’s first great loves.

After a period of courtship, parties, sex and getting to know each other, they decide to live together. For the outside world, this hip couple presents an ideal picture, but behind those beautiful filters things start going wrong between the sheets.
