Plot summary

This fairy tale for grown-up children tells us about Georg and Monika Hedberg, they are so rich and live in such luxury that they have lost sight of each other and the ability to be happy, the way they were when they lived in humble circumstances. Now they quarrel and annoy each other instead, and finally they agree to get a divorce.

In consultation with their lawyer they make a bet to save their marriage. The lawyer says that they are simply too spoiled, impractical and behave like two children. They will now start over again, move to a humble apartment, go back to work and live solely on their income during these months while the lawyer freezes all their assets. Can a more modest life make happiness come back?
