This documentary shows romantic relationships in various corners of the globe: Indonesian interior, Himalaya, North India, Russia, Poland and France. It proves that even universal feelings look different in various cultural and social environments. In two different indigenous groups of the islands of Indonesia, people have various models of marriage. For example, Korowai man lives with one woman, while the neighbouring Dani man has three wives. In Himalayan nomadic groups a woman has two husbands, while in Russia, an intelligent woman has two partners. In Poland, one man loves four women interchangeably, and in France, the young couple experiences the first truly important relationship on a margin of society.
