Synopsis

In the mid-1970s, fleeing life from her abusive husband Rolf, Elisabeth moves into her brother Goran's commune with her two children Stefan and Eva. A big house in suburban Stockholm, the commune is called "Together" and inhabited by a crowded assortment of hippies and would-be revolutionaries. United by their leftist politics, this eccentric "family" includes charming medical student Lasse, his ex-wife who left him to become a lesbian, their eight-year-old son, a gay man who pines after Lasse, and a frustrated Communist. Initially resistant to Elisabeth's entry, the various idealists of the commune soon accept her and the children as part of their family. Soon Elisabeth is acclimating to her new surroundings and the commune's liberal attitudes towards sex, drugs and politics. But just as she's becoming settled, her husband shows up looking to get the family back together.
