Nora, Franziska, Annabel and Luise have known each other since university. The greatest constant in all of their lives has been the fact that they have always kept in touch, even when they were all on very different trajectories in their careers and their personal lives. The four of them have always dreamt of living together some-day. Now they are nearly 70. Many of their dreams have gone unfulfilled. Three of them live alone. The thought of ending up in an old people’s home is anathema to them. When one of the women inherits her parents’ house, a former farmhouse with a pub attached, the question is suddenly back on the table: should they take the plunge and move in together? Can their old friendship survive the new pressures of living in the same house? With the realisation of their youthful dream comes the beginning of something completely new. Because the last few decades of life should be lived to the full.
