When twenty-something Anne pops to the shops in her least glamorous attire and immediately runs into ex Lily and her hot new partner, it’s safe to say we’ve all felt that excruciating pain. In six adorable and breezy vignettes, each section divided up by one of Anne’s ex girlfriend’s, we dive headlong into the bustling hubbub of Amsterdam’s hipster scene. That awkward chance encounter sparks a trip down memory lane, as Anne grapples with moving into a new home solo, personal crises and drama with her supportive besties, overbearing parents and would-be suitors that each bring their own complications with them. Sometimes to move forward and figure out who we want to be, and who we want to be with, we have to go right back to where it all started. Wearing its heart on its sleeve, this Dutch delight is an effervescent treat.
