Love and other Catastrophes

Sofie Stougaard, Denmark, 2016

100 min.DK/Feature

From the outside, Rosa and Frederik are the perfect couple. Rosa is successful, deliberate and analytical, while Frederik complements her by being her opposite, succeeding in life thanks to his undeniable charm. But something is wrong! When Rosa gets pregnant, after secretly having gone off the pill, Frederik convinces her to get an abortion. Meanwhile, Frederik is having an affair with Sonja, who is more in love with him than he is in her. Sonja gets pregnant as well and seeks clarity about what to do at the city’s best psychologist – Rosa. Should she keep the baby, have an abortion, involve her lover? As Sonja incidentally reveals the identity of the father, Rosa's world collapses, and "the perfect couple" finds themselves in the midst of their first crisis, having to re-evaluate everything.
