Marlene and Sofia - A Double Love Story

A writer struggles to finish a book that someone else started writing, battling to weave his own characters and plot into the pre-existing manuscript.

A group of well-off old people in a retirement home seek relief from boredom by using an internet service which allows them to live out their fantasies virtually. Two working-class men, one young and disenfranchised, one a lifelong Communist, discuss their differing world views. An unstable computer genius and a control freak banker form an uneasy alliance to launch a new internet sensation, while the free-spirited girlfriend of one of them, Marlene, wreaks havoc wherever she goes. In the midst of this confusion, her best friend Sofia searches for a kinder, simpler way of life.

All these stories gradually interconnect in the most unexpected ways…

By turns cynical and romantic, satirical and unexpectedly sweet, “Marlene and Sofia – A Double Love Story” reflects the sexual and political contradictions of contemporary living.
