Director Lina Maria Mannheimer places a personal ad in a dating app, with the intention of following two children of the nineties and their dating habits for one year. Swedish youngsters Naomi (22) and Edvin (20) agree to give weekly interviews for one year. Mannheimer follows them on their journey to adulthood, a journey full of challenges involving their studies, work, relationships with parents, friends and love. The development of their digital personas is not unimportant in the contemporary era. For Naomi and Edvin, the difference between their public and private selves is a balancing act. An intimate observation of the millennial generation, openly addressing the dreams, relationships, fears and challenges, with an unexpected twist.
