Are we experiencing a great confusion of love or a new sentimental order? When love, complicity or sex is missing, we stop everything and start all over again with a new partner, without necessarily caring about children! The couple remains our ideal but we become more demanding. Where does this idea of a couple based on love, sex, fidelity and free commitment between two persons come from? To answer all these questions, this film retraces the great adventure of the couple, from the origins of mankind… up to nowadays!
