Couples tell us about themselves while working in their respective gardens. With a subtle comedic touch, the film peeks behind the pretty façades of middle-class life, as the protagonists tell their stories about relationships and love. Filmed with extreme accuracy at a constant pace, the film is always magically in movement, providing a smooth and graceful feeling of shared intimacy.
