A love story about human relationships and how the theater can be a mirror allowing us to know ourselves better, and make some important decisions. Ànnia is about to turn forty. After divorcing because of strife caused by her infertility, she moves in with her grandfather. In one of the moving boxes, she discovers a secret: the biggest lie her ex-husband ever kept from her. But today is Saturday and she’s getting together with her friends to have a cookout and go to the theater to see Companion Animals. The performance has a transformative effect on them all, especially Ànnia and Max, her best friend, who’s come back from London to confess to her that he needs her by his side, like a companion animal.
