Splitting Up Together

TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Comedy

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?
