Between the four walls of the mediator’s consultation room, different couples put a stop to their marriages, which lasted for decades, and their signature under the divorce papers.
They pledged loyalty ‘until death do them part’. Marga and Mat, Gerda and Bennie. But life ran a different course. After a long life together, both couples decide to separate after all. In the mediator’s consulting room, they settle their divorce: they extricate themselves and divide their properties. How do they look back on the past decades together? And how do they look ahead to the time they still have without each other? Conversations, shown without any frills, in a strict frame: this exposes the pain of separating, but also the consolation and relief.
