Many couples have experienced this during the restrictions associated with Kovit-19: Sealing with your half all day is not always fun, and far from it. But the worst is: Imprisonment with a person you break up with. The situation was plagued by Linda (Anne Hathaway) and Paxton (Civetal Egiophore), who were forced to live together from morning to night when two Londoners had difficulty supporting each other before the epidemic. To make matters worse, they are both frustrated at work. Linda is in a very high position in a big fashion company, but when asked to fire employees by video conference, this woman is the last straw of the whole introspection and fears that she can no longer see herself. Dark. A glass.

Paxton’s situation is not so jealous, because after being convicted by a court many years ago, he could not find a job other than a delivery driver, and he was barred from rejoining the community.
