"Happily Ever After" is a merciless and humorous portrait of contemporary loving.

When filmmaker Tatjana Božić has for the umpteenth time found the love of her life and again things threaten to go terribly wrong, she decides that she should turn over a new leaf. This relationship must succeed! Tatyana visits five exes in Moscow, Hamburg, London and Zagreb to find an answer to the question why all her love affairs always end on the rocks. With a good dose of self-mockery, but also with deeply felt passion, she unravels her past relationships and she confronts her (ex-)men and herself with the complexities of contemporary loving. The documentary is a confrontational, emotional, but at the same time humorous film, easily recognizable to everyone of us, in which the filmmaker staunchly keeps searching for the holy grail of love: the Happily Ever After!
