60 min.DK/Documentary

They are approaching their mid 20's and adult life is approaching like dark clouds on the horizon. A disturbing perspective, when you haven't quite found your way in life and just enjoy days as they come - talk, party, sleep and do it all over again the next day. "We never have to grow up" Sus says to her friend Marline, while they watch the sun come up after a night out in Copenhagen. Still the girls cannot help thinking - where am I going in life? Is there someone out there, who will take good care of my heart? And what if that person is a girl? With a view of the rooftops of Copenhagen, and always with a cigarette between their fingers, three friends let us share their private space. In a series of intimate situations, "Lovebirds" portrays the fragile and intoxicating freedom during the years, where life still lies ahead of us.
