Set in 1970s Copenhagen, the film focuses on a well-off professional couple who, upon inheriting a large house, decide to experiment with communal living, which was all the rage in Scandinavia at the time. Energized by the era's relaxed taboos, the couple assembles a diverse, rather motley crew of cohabitants and embarks on their adventure; but when infidelity enters the mix; both the commune and the marriage at its core begin to unravel.
