POJECT More Than Love
When they started as a couple, Oana and Ștefan decided that their partnership would be based solely on honesty and love. Both of them were free to engage in romantic and sexual relationships with others, as long as they were completely honest with each other. During these 10 years of open-relationship, they shared or talked about their experiences – from casual sexual encounters to month-long affairs. And it worked perfectly for them.

In this definitory moment for them as a couple, Ștefan and Oana are trying to negotiate new terms for their relationship and find a way to make polyamory work equally for all three of them. But can love follow rules?
