Dina and Michael are in their early 30s. He’s a doctor, she’s an actress. At first they are happy. Then he suggests they should split up. To which she says, "Nö!" The film then follows them over the coming years as they try to navigate their way through life's pitfalls, live up to their own parents' expectations, keep their careers on track and be good parents themselves.

NÖ is a film about love, our search for and inability to live it when it is there. A film about the passing of time and that generation, now in their thirties, that has so much, tries so hard and often fails silently. It is a film about something that cinema does especially well, showing those psychological states that lie beyond the visible, but are no less real and decisive for our life's journey.
