Till death do us part
Till death do us part

The focus of Till death do us part is the consulting room of a specialized seniors’ counselor. A number of different married couples come into view. What they share is that they are all over 70 and getting ready to divorce.

What has happened in these people’s lives that has caused them to drastically change course this late? Where does the courage come from that is needed to do away with everything they have known for so long? What are their dreams? How do they justify their choice to the other person and themselves?

And if more and more people decide to leave after 40 years together, is it still possible for a relationship to last a lifetime? And is it necessary? Or is the idea that you can live multiple lives during your time on earth a liberating one?
