When four young people flee London in an attempt to form a utopia based on sex, they must unpack our generation’s morals and find new ones in the world they’ve created.

In protest of an increasingly unstable world, friends Max, Charlotte, Leah and Jack retreat to the countryside to form a polyamorous commune and a new way of life. Driven by rampant eroticism and a complete rejection of society’s values, the quartet of friends set up new rules for love, sex and spirituality, while protecting themselves from the politics and emotional fragility of the outside world. By totally isolating themselves, these friends and lovers are faced with the unblinking reality of who they are.
