    • Aldona works as an intimacy coordinator during filming, a role in which she assists in establishing boundaries and ensuring a smooth process for filming intimate scenes. Despite her expertise in this area, she finds herself in a marriage devoid of intimacy, a situation to which she has become accustomed.

      After discovering her husband's infidelity and addiction to sex and other women, Aldona is faced with a difficult decision. Despite the advice from those around her, who suggest leaving the relationship for the sake of her own well-being, she chooses to try and save the relationship at all costs.

      As Aldona tries to accept her husband's weaknesses, she becomes increasingly aware of the growing distrust and paranoia that it triggers within her. She finds herself walking a fine line, risking her own mental and emotional well-being. It affects her work as an intimacy coordinator, as she begins to overstep boundaries with others, losing sight of her professional responsibilities. Eventually, Aldona reaches a breaking point. She realizes that she cannot continue in this relationship while sacrificing her own health and happiness. Recognizing the need for self-liberation from the co-dependence she has developed, she makes the difficult decision to part ways with her husband. It is a step towards finding her own identity and understanding what truly brings her joy. Meanwhile, her husband takes steps to address his issues by seeking rehabilitation and therapy.

      In a state of desperation, Aldona seeks refuge at Audrius' place and discovers him in the company of another woman. She asks the woman to leave and remains at the house, longing for her husband's embrace. Eventually, Aldona decides to return home with the intention of starting anew, working towards rebuilding their relationship.

      This is a story about hidden addictions and the journey of self-discovery within them. It explores the process of understanding our personal boundaries and distinguishing between actions driven by addiction and those motivated by self-love, passion for our work, and genuine affection for our partner. It revolves around breaking free from old patterns and embracing the capacity for change.
