Loose Ends (Unbestaendig und kuhl)

Loose Ends

Friends are not always as good as you expect, lovers sometimes not as faithful as you believe - and the weather hardly ever as sunny as you hope. And still, everything could have turned out like it was supposed to if Sara hadn´t invited an old friend to the wedding. When Nick returns to his hometown, the well-settled lives of his friends begin to twist and turn - in more than one unexpected way. Sara stumbles into a secret passionate love affair while planning her wedding, Katherine falls for her old boyfriend after having been single for four years - and Nina, who hardly ever wakes up with the same woman twice, meets her match and finally surrenders. And in the end, nothing turns out like it was supposed to.

Loose Ends, a melancholic farewell to innocence, tells the stories of seven friends who, at the end of their twenties, find themselves no longer wondering what it is they want, but whether what they want is what they need.
