Synopsis
Maureen Marovitch believes in polyamory, the philosophy of simultaneously loving more than one person. David Finch, her live-in boyfriend, does not- and he is far from silent about his wish that Maureen break up with her two other lovers and settle down with him. What makes this relationship even more unique is the extremely unconventional way they choose to explore their conflict- by making a documentary about it. They set out across North America, looking for examples of successful polyamorous lifestyles- including swingers, pagans, a group family, and the attendees of the Loving More Polyamory Convention. These travels establish the wider context for the film, but it is when they turn the camera on themselves, exposing their private lives and the effects of polyamory on their psychological and sexual well-being, that the film finds its emotional core.
