Synopsis

This film examines the singles phenomenon. Some 30% of people in their child-bearing years live alone without a partner. Who are these singles? Why do they live alone without a partner and how? Do they like living alone or are they afraid? Do they think life with someone isn't worth it, or is it a case of not being able to find the right person? Have they given up looking? This documentary film searches for answers through six protagonists whose lives are followed by the camera over the course of one year.
