Christmas approaches. Three sets of people make their way to Amsterdam... Alan, divorced, travels to Amsterdam to see a Bob Dylan concert - unaware that he will be accompanied by his troubled teenage son, Jack. Karen, a single mother, struggles to give her daughter the best wedding possible, working as a caterer and cleaning offices. However, on the plane with her daughter's hen party, she'll question her life of sacrifices. Meanwhile middle-aged couple Marion and Richard are also on their way, celebrating Marion's birthday. But her anxieties over age, motherhood and desire influence a decision that could change the course of their marriage. And in Amsterdam their lives are transfigured as they encounter the complexities of love in a city that challenges what has gone before.
