’That morning, neither of us knew that the same evening, we would be getting divorced. There had been no planning but when it happened, it was a moment of clarity.’
Every Other Couple’ is a documentary film about moments when we realize that our life is going to chance for good. It’s a film about separation.
The cast consists of three ex-couples. Some of them remember the moment of their separation in a radically different way. Their stories deal with events of common past and life after divorce which exists in scenes where ex-couples still have to deal with each other. The meeting with the ex in the hallway while the children are changing base for the next week. Christmas dinner together with the former family. Mini-portrayals of life after divorce.
Almost everywhere in the Western World every second marriage ends up in divorce. Even if it hasn’t happened to you yet, it has happened to someone close to you, or maybe it is present in your life as a fear or even a hope.
‘At some point I realized that I’m going to survive.’
