A group of well-off old people in a retirement home seek relief from boredom by using an internet service which allows them to live out their fantasies virtually. Two working-class men, one young and disenfranchised, one a lifelong Communist, discuss their differing world views. An unstable computer genius and a control freak banker form an uneasy alliance to launch a new internet sensation, while the free-spirited girlfriend of one of them, Marlene, wreaks havoc wherever she goes. In the midst of this confusion, her best friend Sofia searches for a kinder, simpler way of life.
All these stories gradually interconnect in the most unexpected ways…
By turns cynical and romantic, satirical and unexpectedly sweet, "Marlene and Sofia – A Double Love Story" reflects the sexual and political contradictions of contemporary living.
