Kaat leaves Max the day after her thirtieth birthday and moves in with her friend Sascha. Kaat is in a dilemma. She is pregnant and does not know who the father is, Max or Christophe, the boyfriend of her other friend Isa. Though Sascha and Isa are suspicious of her curious behaviour, Kaat remains silent and quickly arranges an abortion. When it turns out that Kaat isn’t pregnant after all, she confesses everything to Sascha and resolves to return to Max. But Max doesn’t want her back and what is more Sascha insists that she comes clean with Isa. While Kaat is ignorant of the mess she has made of her and other people’s lives, Sascha suffers a personal tragedy. Then Isa is forced to confront herself, and the extent of her ambition, when she is dumped by Christophe. But whereas Sascha and Isa show signs of confronting their problems, Kaat remains obsessed with restoring the past, and her futile efforts to get Max back she risks losing the most important thing of all, her friends.
