Summer is the season for weddings. Confirmed bachelor Ben and his girlfriend Alice, who just broke up with her boyfriend, are invited to ten weddings at once. In order not to look for a plus one, the guys decide to pretend to be a couple in love. Will they be able to resist the magic of sex around them and stay friends?
“We came up with the idea of the film Plus One at a time when all our friends, as if having got together, started to bind themselves with family ties. We decided that the story of growing a long-standing friendship into love amid all these countless weddings would be an excellent occasion to share our thoughts and feelings about the life’s defining moments of each person,” the directors and screenwriters say about the idea [the quote is not precise].
