Lena and Martin were once madly in love. But, like many marriages, time and circumstance eventually took their toll and the romance disappeared.

Finding themselves in a platonic marriage and acting more like a pair of camp counselors wrangling their kids than a couple hopelessly in love, they decide that everyone's lives would be better served if they got a divorce.

Still wanting the best for their three kids and facing a daunting real estate market, the couple decides to "Bird Nest" instead. One parent will live in the house as the "on-duty" parent taking care of the kids, while the "off-duty" parent will live in the detached garage, doing whatever he or she pleases while switching off every other week.

Could being apart ultimately lead to them getting back together?

House of Cards without Kevin Spacey, interesting.  Its probably akin to having The Blacklist without James Spader.

Absolutely - or like Shameless without Emmy Rossum. Don't see how that's going to work.
